Quote of the Day – June 13 2012

“The higher the sun ariseth, the less shadow doth he cast; even so the greater is the goodness, the less doth it covet praise; yet cannot avoid its rewards in honours.”
–Lao Tsu

Wow an entry that definitely doesn’t write itself. Feeling the sun energy or perhaps the need for it of late…Definitely a bit of Obscureness…The clouds are in the way. Not that I don’t have an underlying sense of the rightness of it all. Things unfold as they will yet knowing that and feeling it are two different things. Still meditate more and fret less  or as a friend of mine says “Shut up and do your fucking yoga”. Almost always good advice I find…

Fractal clouds glowing
rainbow colours
set on fire by spirit sun

forms morphing
elemental kaleidoscope
the shapes i see
self-expression
subject of my lens perception
showing me the symbols I need
to carry on…

Quote of the Day – February 6 2011

“Nothing in the world is more flexible and yielding than water. Yet when it attacks the firm and the strong, none can withstand it, because they have no way to change it. So the flexible overcome the adamant, the yielding overcome the forceful. Everyone knows this, but no one can do it.”

–Lao Tsu

Quote of the Day-December 14 2009

“He who knows others is learned, he who knows himself is wise. “

– Lao Tze

So do I feel learned or wise? Do I have either knowledge (perception) or wisdom ? I seem to know a lot about people and motivations. I get me most of the time lately there seems to be some confusing emotional weather, it happens, do i wish to identify with confusion or just watch it pass? That seems an easy one. How much effort am I putting into figuring things out? Too much, not enough and who decides?  I guess that one feels easy too. I decide.

I bought the ticket, I better just sit back and enjoy the ride.
