“Man is flying too fast for a world that is round.

Soon he will catch up with himself in a great rear end collision.”

Wonderful quote Ruth, a friend said to me the other day, sometimes we forget to slow down and make time to smell the flowers, so simple yet so true. Did you take the picture??

Yes Auds; it was taken late afternoon yesterday from our garden.

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
