I would assume these fish don’t pay much attention to what’s going on above the surface. How wrong I am! They carefully observe all my movements and act accordingly. Whether my presence is a source of danger or an opportunity to get fed, the decision is made in a split second.


“Be generous with compassion, love, hugs, encouragement, good deeds and gratitude. Expect nothing in return.” – Jakob Lagerstedt

Looking at these mountains around me makes me feel small and insignificant. Funny how some of us try to leave a dent in the Universe with unique inventions, yet the same mountains looking at me now will stand here for centuries or even millennials when those attempts to leave a dent in the Universe will be long forgotten. Nature silently witnesses our naivety and arrogance.


“Sitting in profound silence is the most valuable thing I do, after love. And the love is found in the silence.” – Leo Babauta

As we walk in life, we come to face a new path from time to time. There will be people who might even try to convince us to walk the path in question. Yet we have to look within to see how we feel about it. Does the path reflect who we are?

If it feels right, there is no reason to hesitate, because the feeling is the voice of the soul. It always guides us with honesty and in our best interests.


“A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves as something to aim at.” – Bruce Lee

#quote #brucelee

In whichever direction I look, I see endless possibilities. Yet my mind tends to build up walls around me. As I lose sight of those possibilities my vision blurs. I find myself standing idle. Witnessing the precious time slipping through my fingers like sand pains me.

I’m wondering, “How could I bring those walls down?” I figure emptying the mind will help, so I try it. As the walls around me fall like a house of cards, I take a deep breath.

I’m not idle anymore. I take a step forward, then another one. Suddenly, joy begins to flood through me like an electric shock. I feel alive again! Just then I learn the lesson. Once again, I can see the endless possibilities, but this time within me.
