Rejoice because thorns have roses

 “We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorns have roses” says Alphonse Karr.

What this is telling us, is that we can choose to see the positive side of something, rather than to focus on the negative.

You are the force that moves the wind

Plinio Nomellini

Artwork: Plinio Nomellini (1866–1943)

You are Life passing through your body, passing through your mind, passing through your soul. Once you find that out, not with logic, not with the intellect, but because you can feel that Life, you find out that you are the force that makes the flowers open and close, that makes the hummingbird fly from flower to flower. You find out that you are in every tree, and you are in every animal, vegetable, and rock.

You are that force that moves the wind and breathes through your body. The whole universe is a living being that is moved by that force, and that is what you are. You are Life.

— Don Miguel Ruiz

Persistent Intuition

 

The smallest flower is a thought, a life answering to some feature of the Great Whole, of whom they have a persistent intuition.
Honore De Balzac
