Knowledge, power, character, respect

Bruce Lee was a terrific martial artist and I really enjoyed his acting. But, he had a lot of insight into life as well. Here’s one of my favorites.

Past, Present, Future

We still have some of the lemon colored daylilies blooming on the West side of the house. Looking at these, the fading, blurry blossom in the background, the crisp, clear, bright, vital blossom in the foreground and the yet blurry but increasingly sharp buds about to open, it struck me as a metaphor of life, at least as I’ve experienced it so far.

Past Present and Future of a Daylily

Rumi: The world is like a mountain …

Here’s something nice from the Rumi page on Facebook.

This world is like a mountain.
Your Echo depends on you.
If you scream good things, the world will give it back.
If you scream bad things, the world will give it back.
Even if someone says badly about you, speak well about him.
Change Your Heart to change the World.

I love this photo, a wonderful metaphor for life. Whatever kinks and bends life puts into you, grow, stand up, stand strong.

leaf and twig

With only its curvature telling its story
a tree rights itself against unseen forces.
