Today’s Sage Advice From the I Ching…

Summer Blossoms In My Neighborhood (I) – Photo by Toni Roberts

(Lao Tzu, in the sixth century B.C. elaborates upon the meditative mood as follows:)

“(S/he) who knows does not speak.

(S/he) who speaks does not know.

Close the mouth.

Shut the door of desire.

Blunt the sharpness.

Untie the tangles.

Soften the light.

Become one with the dusty world.”

(Italics mine.)

When Life Seems To Be Pushing Against Me…

Against All Odds…

and I am all hemmed in and don’t know what to do…

where to go…

which way to turn…

who to listen to…

what to choose…

I

then

follow

my

heart

my

joy

and

I

am

never

disappointed

Whenever I feel down, defeated, overcome and depressed, all I have to do is look at these photos! Two friends and I attended a “sweat” this past Saturday at the New Dawn Foundation in New Rochelle, NY; and as we mounted the entrance steps what greeted us but a message from Mother Nature about never giving up…about how the seemingly impossible can and does occur. Not only did this brave little warrior of a plant coming up from a crack in the wall not give up its quest to reach the light from its home deep in the darkness below concrete steps, it had the bodacious audacity to blossom in its victory! I was caught without my camera but my friend, Patricia Bolivar, came to the rescue with her smart phone! Does this photo not lift your heart?
