Monday Moods

Remembering the inconceivable heartbreaks of 9/11 that directly impacted us on many levels, sending love and support to those already affected by Harvey and Irma, and well wishes to those of us bracing for impact. Stay safe, and hug your loved ones!

 

“If you take too long in deciding what to do with your life, you’ll find you’ve done it.”
~ George Bernard Shaw

“Before enlightenment – chopping wood, carrying water. After enlightenment – chopping wood, carrying water.”
~ Buddha

You know—we’ve all heard it for years—our life will be happier, more prosperous, more meaningful if we have a plan, know where we’re going, and work systematically at getting there.

If you’ve tried to do that, you’ve undoubtedly met with a great deal of frustration along the way.

No matter how hard you work at your plan, there are those constant interruptions that get in the way and make it seem so difficult.

You are not alone.

Taking control of your life can result in great personal satisfaction, provided you understand it does not bring you to perfection.

Intertwined in our desire to achieve peace, success, and enlightenment, there is still plenty of wood to chop and water to carry. The day-to-day responsibilities of life do not disappear. We simply gain the strength to bear them more readily – and with a smile.
