A stillness that unmasks

Thought for the last day of May, courtesy of Franz Kafka:

You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait. Do not even wait, be quite still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.

Be open to the rolling. Welcome it with joy.

In the spin cycle of life, perspective is everything

Thought for the day, courtesy of former U.S. treasurer Ivy Baker Priest:

The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be only the beginning.

What colour are your glasses?

This quote caught my eye today:

Whether the world is blue or rosy depends upon the kind of spectacles we wear.  It’s our glasses, not the world, that need attention.
(Author unknown)

Always remember:  you are the one in charge of the glasses you choose to see through, and you are the one who can change your eye wear if it doesn’t fit right.

Colour your own world.  Make it brilliant.
