Waiting For The Day, originally uploaded by no3rdw.

One does not accomplish great ends in some by-and-by future, O Warrior. Only in the present can you hammer out real achievement. The worried mind tends to veer from the only real goal-- realizing the Atma, uniting with Divinity, the True Self Within.

The ideal, Ajuna, is to be intensely active and at the same time have no selfish motives, no thoughts of personal gain or loss. Duty uncontaminated by desire leads to inner peacefulness and increased effectiveness. This is the secret art of living a life of real achievement!

vintage buttons

Vintage Buttons, originally uploaded by craftapalooza.

After admiring the bowl of vintage buttons my therapist keeps in her office, she invited me to choose a few to keep. They will act, she told me, as a physical reminder of our work together.

Nothing could have been more perfect. I carried them in my pocket today and when I got some bad news I found comfort in turning these little totems over in my fist.

"Nothing walks, or creeps, or grows, or exists, which must not in turn arise and walk before him as exponent of his meaning. Comes he to that power, his genius is no longer exhaustible." - RWE
