Quote 6/21 13

lilosophieJune 21, 2013

Whenever your inner life is clouded, your influence in the world is under a shadow.
If your are fearful, you will be attacked, if you cloak genuine mysteries in Dogma,
opportunities for new insights will be lost, if you vacillate in upholding your principles,
you will be tested; yet when you are firm and strong, the power of truth can break
through even the most stubborn minds.
The I Ching

Everyone wears their own colored glasses, even the rose-color is not always the same shade!
me

Be empty of worrying,
Think who created thought
Why do you stay in prison
When the door is wide open?
Rumi

HAPPY SOLSTICE TO ALL!

Good quotes, Lilo. You are a wise woman!

The picture is beautiful; what a vista to see upon looking outside. Mountains are balm to my soul and they are close to where I live. I just can't see them from my window.

Happy Solstice to you and everyone. As my Father used to say, "Now the days are getting shorter. It won't be long till Winter".

(Come on, cold weather!) LOL

The picture is taken from the hills behind my property, it's about 1/4 mile of a pretty steep climb,
.This was taken a few years ago, a family lives now right on the spot where I stood to take the picture.

Great as always, including the picture.

Lilo, the Rumi quote reminded me of a German song, you might know it: "Die Gedanken sind frei....... In English- thoughts are free, as in freedom.

Anneliese, I learned that song in school, maybe 6th grade, and it has stuck with me ever since
