'The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.'
~ Alan Watts
the above image is from a few weeks ago, we had some unexpected spring snow here in wales, a shock to the system at first.. but up in the hills where the only visible footprints were of... sheep..crows..and the midnight fox... natures woven magic... delighted the senses... and gave the leg muscles agood workout... after playing knee deep among mothers crunchy snowlight : )
'The secret and the sacred are sisters. When the secret is not respected... the sacred vanishes. Consequently... reflection... should not shine too severe or aggressive a light... on the world... of the soul.'
~ John O'Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom
You are standing at exactly the place towards which you have been traveling ~ for seven years or seventy years or seven hundred years.
Your reality is within you, it is not somewhere else. But to understand the point, sometimes it takes years. You knock on many doors before you come to your own door...and then you are puzzled, because this is the house you had left and this is the house you have been searching for ~Osho
