“Don’t chase after your thoughts
as a shadow follows it’s object.
Find joy and peace in this very moment.”
~ Thich Nhat Hanh
“Put your thoughts to sleep,
do not let them cast a shadow
over the moon of your heart.
Let go of thinking.
“If with a pure mind a person speaks or acts,
happiness follows them
like a never-departing shadow'”

“Looking up gives light,
although at first it makes you dizzy.”
“I am trying so hard to live in the moment and
enjoy it while it’s happening,
because it feels like a moving freight train that I just got on,
and I’m trying not to look back and get dizzy!
~ Laura Bell Bundy
“To be alive is to be dizzy
and not to know exactly where to go.”

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
“When I run after what I think I want,
my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety;
if I sit in my own place of patience,
what I need flows to me,
and without pain.”
“Do you have patience to wait until your mud settles,
and the water is clear?
Can you remain unmoving until the right action arrives by itself?
~ Lao Tzu (Toa Te Ching)
