Thoughts for Today

"A tree has both straight and crooked branches; the symmetry of the tree, however, is perfect. Life is balanced like a tree. When you consider the struggles, difficulties, and sorrows as a part of it, then you see it as beautiful and perfect." - George M. Lamsa

Every moment - a perfect moment

every second full of potential

every thought a building block

a stepping off point into the endless now

it is forever now, despite the illusions

of expectation and memory

of a before and an after

it is now

it is always now


"The flower doesn't dream of the bee.
It blossoms and the bee comes." - Mark Nepo

Great quote, I love reading George Lamsa. It is his interpretation of the Bible that I read. BUT, incredibly beautiful words from you.
