I bet it is very hard for you to love all the people in the world. There are only four people in our family, and I can never do it. –Nan
Welcome fellow travelers and seekers of peace, happiness, and truth:
The thought for this month is about your beliefs. July’s quote cannot be denied nor confused. We’ve been there. Some remain there (by choice). However, by our beliefs, there is always hope.
With this being said as an opening dialogue I would like to take an opportunity to reflect on a piece I ran across in my daily reading. It’s from the author Ray Grigg in his book titled, “The Tao of Relationships.
Neither Stone nor Water
It is said that water is soft and stone is hard. Yet in the softness of water is something unyielding that erodes the hardness of stone. In the hardness of stone is something yielding that gives way to the softness of the water. Find the hardness in water and the softness in stone.
We deceive ourselves when we are stone feigning hardness to water or water feigning softness to stone.
We are outside of words. We are neither stone nor water, hardness nor softness, but just the Tao, taking every form and unable to find even itself.
Be without Purpose
The secret is this: soften like water,
trust the inner urge; leave each moment to itself
and move in the unerring course;
be without purpose.
Free Your Mind
