Here are just a few of his many whispered whimsical wisdoms:
“There’s nothing wrong with having a tree as a friend.“
“The secret to doing anything is believing that you can do it. Anything that you believe you can do strong enough, you can do. Anything. As long as you believe.”
“You too can paint almighty pictures.”
“There’s an artist hidden at the bottom of every single one of us.” “No pressure. Just relax and watch it happen.”
“You need the dark in order to show the light.”
”Go out on a limb — that’s where the fruit is.”
”Isn’t it fantastic that you can change your mind and create all these happy things?”

1 year ago In Taoism, there’s this idea of a river flowing underneath us, headed home to the sea. It's got a direction, the natural direction of our lives. The way. Our path. Water flowing down a river doesn’t strain to do so, it just flows naturally. And so it is with our lives.. going upstream against this current gets us nowhere. We need to relax into it, and ride the current of our lives. We may be floating on the lazy river of our life, but there’s nothing wrong with steering our own ships a little bit. Riding the waves as they come along, throwing in some personal flair. Some cultures spend years and years in sitting meditation (i.e. zazen) trying to learn to sit still, relax, sit still, and let the true, natural, intuitive self emerge. Those who really give yoga a chance have probably come to realize that yoga softens us, helps us let go and get rid of our attachments so we can relax into the natural current of our lives. This lets us be more present for how life is actually unfolding. More appreciative of the gifts, the magic, all that wonderful stuff out in front of us everyday. We create so much of our own suffering, and the suffering of those around us, without even meaning to. This is often a result of the stories we tell ourselves, and the images we’re so consumed with about what our lives should look like. And because of this, we end up missing out on life altogether, struggling to swim upstream.. against the current. Many of us have been criticizing ourselves our entire lives, and guess what? That doesn’t work. Beating ourselves up for eating junk, or not accomplishing a certain set of things, or not being a certain way, is just energy in the wrong direction. What if we tried approving of ourselves for a change?? And see what happens. Then we’d really be moving with the current, a scenic journey to our deepest self. As the Tao Te Ching says, “Let your way be as the way of water, running deep and filled with peace. Do not struggle or compete, go with the flow and be serene.”
1 year ago Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again. And what do we teach our children? We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we also teach them what they are? We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move. You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel? You must work, we must all work, to make the world worthy of its children.
