falling leaves. falling days.

You have to see life. You shouldn’t say, life of the leaf, but life in the leaf, and life in the tree.

My life is just Life, and you can see it in me and in the tree.

I saw the leaf leave the branch and float down to the soil, dancing joyfully,

because as it floated it saw itself already there in the tree.

It was so happy. I bowed my head,

and I knew that we have a lot to learn from the leaf

because it was not afraid;

it knew that nothing can be born and nothing can die.

~Thich Nhat Hanh

open. kind. rekindled.

inquiry for today~ what next?

very fine indeed

Letting go does not mean erasing a memory

or ignoring the past. It is when you are no longer

reacting to the things that used to make you feel

tense and releasing the energy attached to certain

thoughts. It takes self-awareness, intentional action,

practice and time. Letting go is the act of getting to

know yourself so deeply that all delusions fall away.
