“We all follow an unknown path and an uncharted stream, and it takes great courage to move ahead with our eyes and our hearts open. When we look with deep compassion, we may find it necessary to change our life again and again, to let go of unwise parts of ourselves or to extend our compassion in new ways to the world around us.”
– Jack Kornfield

The Dynamic Mind

leave a comment »

“A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.” – Oliver Wendell

Oilver Wendell’s thought reminds me of the words of American author William Mathews: “Knowledge is acquired by study and observation, but wisdom cometh by opportunity of leisure. The ripest thoughts come from a mind which is not always on the stretch, but fed, at times, by a wise passiveness.”

“After a period of creative silence, attacking any deadline is made simple. The mind has had time to lay down the brittle aggressiveness and is ready to operate efficiently. Even physical weariness passes and the goal ahead isn’t so far in the distance.” – Author Unknown

“Oh how beautiful the soul that emerges into the Light! These five magnificent Calla Lilies represent the beautiful emergence of the soul that is newly becoming conscious or a soul that has been developing into its awareness for a while or perhaps a very long time. After all, this emerging process is unfolding during our entire lifetime of seeking.” – Val Jean

Absorption

leave a comment »

“A tree uses what comes its way to nurture itself. By sinking its roots deeply into the earth, by accepting the rain that flows towards it, by reaching out to the sun, the tree perfects its character and becomes great. Absorb, absorb, absorb. That is the secret of the tree.” – Deng Ming-Dao
