monday moment of zen


"sometimes when our life falls apart it is because it is not held together with consciousness, it is held together by illusion, and so it crumbles, and what is left is actually a clearer vision of what is real and of value. so many have found their life path only after what they had formerly perceived as their life crumbles to dust. in other words, it is the illusion of our life which crumbles, leaving reality in its place."
~ max strom

this has happened to us all at some point or another. sometimes it is really hard to do but the best thing you can do is to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and keep moving forward. in fact, it's the only thing you can do. sure we can take time to pity ourselves but we mustn't linger here long because nothing good can come out of it. at the end of the day will you be proud of yourself that you kept your head held high and pushed forward or will you feel ashamed because you wasted your day feeling sorry for yourself? life is too short to spend our time moping around. take whatever reality you've been served and make something great out of it! namaste

Amen to that! I'm hoping to be able to again rise from the dust in my world. However, I've definately been in worse states of mind before! Thanks for sharing these true words of honesty and encouragement.
