Take a pin to your ego.

It’s hot air in an old balloon.
Jung said, There is no coming into consciousness without pain.”

Do it.
You will feel better. We all will feel better.

Adapt

Adapt. Adapt. Adapt.

Steven Hawking said, “Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.”

In adapting to the environment, its weirdness becomes normal.
Even immersed in the most difficult of landscapes, we learn to go with the flow — or, um, in this case, the wind.

Watch this short, and brilliant, animation by Robert Loebel. Ha, It will blow you away…

Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela (1918-2013)

In Chinese, Wu De means martial virtue.
“De” is the “de” in the Tao De Ching, and it ultimately represents spiritual, transcendent power.

Nelson Mandela epitomized the term in every way. Martial Virtue: strength, courage, integrity, beauty, restraint, forgiveness, peace.

The purest form of spirit. And the most powerful.

After The Hurricane

Heaven and earth are ruthless, and treat the myriad creatures as straw dogs;
the sage is ruthless, and treats the people as straw dogs… ~Tao Te Ching

Hurricane Sandy came ashore in the night. The moon and the tide helped her.
She brought the waters up over the banks and into the streets. She moved with reckless abandon, took what she wanted, slinking back into the sea.

In the morning light, damage done, we surveyed the landscape — a place filled with broken glass, broken hearts, and broken dreams. Some lost everything. We cried, cleaned up, managed. This one image, a table flung far from it’s home, evoked the feeling of our grace and endurance at the mercy of nature…

The spirit of the valley never dies. ~Tao Te Ching

Remember who was lost, who was saved, the responders, and the soldiers; who was healed and the still healing…

Love, love and more love.

We Are All Cups

We are all cups, constantly and quietly being filled.

The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out. ~ Ray Bradbury
