267 – Live in simple faith

Live in simple faith . . .
      Just as this trusting cherry
Flowers, fades, and falls
— Kobayashi Issa (1763-1828)

Winter seems thoroughly upon us today – rain and wind aplenty. I’m wrestling with migraines and the whole world seems to be roiling around in some kind of turbulence. This cherry leaf was almost throbbing with colour in the dull grey light and the contrasting greenery.

Ultimately, living in simple faith seems to make the most sense. Running around roaring like lions is fun for a while, but in the end there isn’t much development, much learning or growth. In the end the result is the same.

05. Every day is now. The present moment.
09. Every day learn something new.
13. Every day be better than you were the day before.
