I heard Eckhart Tolle present virtually just over a year ago at Wisdom 2.0 in San Francisco. This is such an uplifting message that reminded me of Thich Nhat Hanh saying the extraordinary is in the ordinary. I only need to open my eyes and heart to witness the extraordinary.
“Seeing beauty in a flower could awaken humans, however briefly, to the beauty that is an essential part of their own innermost being, their true nature.” – Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth
“The Amen of nature is always a flower.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
Let each day unfold without pretense or prediction of what will or should be. Look for the good in others and yourself and let the rest go. Stop trying to fix others and control the uncontrollable. Glimpses of light and clarity are woven through each day to awaken us to life, to ourselves.
Which reminds me of something my wise old grandmother used to say as she planted seeds in her gardens: “Planting a seed shows faith in tomorrow.”
Your grandmother was a wise gardener and person. Farmers, ranchers, and gardeners have great faith in the lives they live in the world.
