The Secret of Health

The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future, not to anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.        Buddha.

This is a wonderful quote for centering and generally being mindful. In light of the current state of our nation as a result of the election, regardless of who you voted for, I think this is especially helpful now. May we all rally up and be wise and earnest as we move forward to build community, one step at a time.

The only real sign of life is growth

The only real sign of life is growth

“The thing is, the only real sign of life is growth. And growth requires pain. So to choose life is to accept pain. Some people go to such lengths to avoid pain that they give up on life. They bury their hearts, or they drug or drink themselves numb until they don’t feel anything anymore. The irony is, in the end their escape becomes more painful than what they’re avoiding.” From Richard Paul Evans’, “The Walk.”

This is a more eloquent version of, “No pain, no gain,” and so true. And the classic, “Better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.” No one enjoys feeling pain, but everyone likes to feel joy. If we attempt to shelter ourselves from pain by hiding or avoiding or not doing, we also won’t experience the sheer joy life can bring. To be truly happy we must truly live life…push the envelope, try new things, risk the unknown and the chance of failure. Live life to its fullest with no regrets.
