Just so

A similar thought to others this week. We are always gently working on the heart’s capacity to accept life as it actually is

When he went back to the fire he knelt and smoothed her hair as she slept

and he said if he were God

he would have made the world just so and no different.

Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Align with the flow of life

Do non-doing;

Strive for the effortless.
Find flavor in that which has no flavor.
Deal with the small as if it were the great, deal with the few as if it were the many,

Respond to resentment with virtue.
Plan for the difficult while it is still easy;
work on the great while it is still small.

Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching, 63

Sunday Quote: Not a dress rehearsal

Will you ever bring a better gift for the world
than the breathing respect that you carry
wherever you go right now? Are you waiting
for time to show you some better thoughts?
