Inertia is death

“Each day is a branch of the Tree of Life laden heavily with fruit.
If we lie down lazily beneath it, we may starve;
but if we shake the branches, some of the fruit will fall for us.”

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The bud stands for all things,

“ The bud
stands for all things,
even for those things that don’t
For everything flowers,
From within,
Of self-blessing;
Though sometimes it is necessary
To reteach a thing its loveliness,
To put a hand on its brow
Of the flower
And retell it in words and in touch
It is lovely
Until it flowers again from within, 
Of self-blessing….”

“Truly I tell you, wherever this gospel is preached throughout the world,
what she has done will also be told, in memory of her.”

Struggle is not an act; it is an attitude.

“Struggle is not an act; it is an attitude. If we believe that we must fight to get what we want, we will toil over everything we do. 
If we recognize, however, that the universe works more efficiently for us when we approach it with ease, life will serve us in miraculous ways.” 

― Alan Cohen
