where everything belongs

Einstein said there are only two ways to live your live your life
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle.

I get into trouble in my life
When I fail to treat my time as precious.
When I succumb to tasks, crisis, disputes, social obligations
Doing things not unique, not interesting, not the product of thought.
Reacting to the ups and downs, tossed to and fro
By this and that, very little of which is significant.
Trying to get lots done
Rather than unique work of quality and beauty
Which takes focus. And re-work.

My life has a flow, my work power
When I create my life, rather than react to it
Live my own rhythm.
Work to manifest my beauty
Which starts with downtime,
Starts with building inner momentum, inner power.

Beware, I say, of
Tranquilization by the long term insignificant
By the trivial.
~Roderick MacIver

it behooves us to consider an internal rhythm….one that revels in the mystic’s call…..the renegade life of hope and wild dreams……

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder, or stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead. His eyes are closed.  ~Albert Einstein

mysterium

How can one understand that part of you

which does the understanding?

~Upanishads, II, 4.14
