Unseize

“Doing nothing often leads to the very best of something.” – Winnie the Pooh

“Peace is not something you can force on anything or anyone… much less upon one’s own mind. It is like trying to quiet the ocean by pressing upon the waves. Sanity lies in somehow opening to the chaos, allowing anxiety, moving deeply into the tumult, diving into the waves, where underneath, within, peace simply is.” – Gerald May

Put it all down for the day.
Wander with no sense of time.
No place to be, no deadlines.
Simply rest, take in the day.
Feed your spirit with quiet, lightness, undoing.
Unseize the day so you can seize what is truly important and worthy.

“Your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answer.” – William S. Burroughs

The Task

“The beginning is always today.” – Mary Wollstonecraft

“The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles, but to irrigate deserts.” – C. S. Lewis

New day.
Fresh start.
Inquire.
Explore.
Learn.
Unlearn.
Retire old thoughts.
Expand.
Plant.
Irrigate deserts.
Begin anew.
Ask better questions.
Allow answers to surface.
Move out from there.

“Is the life I’m living the life that wants to live in me?” – Parker Palmer
