Tao Te Ching Day 13: Arrogance

Those who are on tiptoes cannot stand. Those who straddle cannot walk. Those who flaunt themselves are not clear.” TTC- chp. 24 (Derek Lin) The opposite of humility is arrogance and the Tao Te Ching does not mince words about living arrogantly. I have lived a life of trying to find a way to onlyContinue reading “Tao Te Ching Day 13: Arrogance”

Morning Thoughts

Sometimes the only thing we can do is wait for the sun to come up. Wait for the storm to pass. Wait for the nightmare to be over. Then we can give thanks for the strength, patience and grace to withstand that which we can not control. In the most difficult times, sow deeper rootsContinue reading “Morning Thoughts”

The Race of Human: We Are Not Separate #WritingCommunity #SaturdayMotivation

I woke up in a dark room, that’s good because I turned the light off before I fell asleep and if somehow it turned on while I was sleeping then I would think, “is there a ghost?” I wake up unhappy a lot.  I am not unhappy I see the man sitting in a darkContinue reading “The Race of Human: We Are Not Separate #WritingCommunity #SaturdayMotivation”

Seek in Every Situation. You Are The Mountain. (with audio) #writingcommunity #fridayfeeling

Be Willing- Follow the Inspiration. #writingcommunity #WendnesdayMotivation

We follow a lot of things in life. We follow the Leader, because well they are the leader. We follow directions, because well they are directions. We follow fear to the tune of hiding under our covers. We follow those that have gone before even when their paths have led to damnation. We follow aContinue reading “Be Willing- Follow the Inspiration. #writingcommunity #WendnesdayMotivation”
