"The opposite of prosperity is not extinction."
"Look deep, deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better."
“When all's said and done, all roads lead to the same end. So it's not so much which road you take, as how you take it.”
Charles de Lint
While learning to ride a motorcycle, I was taught the importance of focus. "Where you look - is where you will go." When an obstruction or pothole appears in the road, the eye is drawn to it. But instead of fixing on it, the experienced rider looks at the road ahead, glancing along the clear path around.
Too often, we focus our energy & attentions on that which troubles or displeases us. The rule of attention attracts to us more of the same; We encounter about what we expect to.
In fact we are often oblivious to easy solutions, as we beat our heads bloody on the wall beside an unlocked door. . .
