Be aware of wonder. Live a balanced life--learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.
September 21st - harmony and peace
Expect the best, plan for the worst, and prepare to be surprised.
If we add some dirt and sand to a glass of water it becomes murky, dirty and looks awful. Give it a good shake and it gets even worse. If we leave the glass for a few hours, the water finds its own balance, the sand and silt fall to the bottom and the water becomes clear again.
Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance and order and rhythm and harmony.
Life is so unpredictable that the water in our glass can often be cloudy and unclear. Tomorrow we will have the Autumn equinox with equal daylight and darkness. Nature in a sense is at balance but will soon move out of balance as daylight decreases for the coming months. Finding balance in our own personal lives is never easy given that so much is changing around us.
The seasons are what a symphony ought to be: four perfect movements in harmony with each other.
