“I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand,
as in what direction we are moving:
To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it, but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor”
-Oliver Wendell Holmes-

Did you ever believe you could fly? When I was a little girl I was convinced I could lift off and soar across the land. It was rather like sailing to the port of heaven.

RUTH said...

I never thought about flying myself but I often dreamed of Superman whisking me away.......

Mr Holmes was a very wise man and I wholeheartedly agree with his sentiments - another treasure from you Ruth

Tenderness contains an element of sadness. It is not the sadness of feeling sorry for yourself or feeling deprived, but it is a natural situation of fullness. You feel so full and rich, as if you were about to shed tears. Your eyes are full of tears, and the moment you blink, the tears will spill out of your eyes and roll down your cheeks. In order to be a good warrior, one has to feel this sad and tender heart. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
