Realistic Change

Realistic Change
Forget about perfect. There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in. Just as a snake sheds its skin, we must shed our past over and over again. In life we cannot avoid change and we cannot avoid loss. Freedom and happiness are found in the flexibility and ease with which we move through change. Nothing ever stays the same. You cannot step twice into the same river, for fresh waters are ever flowing in upon you.
What is your position in the funnel of life?

Don’t sell yourself short.

People generally take you at your own estimation of your own worth.

Praise and blame, gain and loss, pleasure and sorrow come and go like the wind.  To be happy, rest like a great tree in the width of them all.

Happiness comes from within. If you choose to be happy, no one and no thing can ever take that happiness from you.

Smile! Like life, Zen is much too important to be taken seriously.

Get outside of your tunnel vision to develop critical insights and focus on the personal and human dimension.

Happiness is an attractive quality.  Pessimists, although they may be right sometimes never make money.  It is the optimists that take the chances and reap the rewards.

Simply be yourself and don’t compete or compare.
