If you can approach the world’s complexities, both its glories and its horrors, with an attitude of humble curiosity, acknowledging that however deeply you have seen, you have only scratched the surface, you will find worlds within worlds, beauties you could not heretofore imagine, and your own mundane preoccupations will shrink to proper size, not all that important in the greater scheme of things.
You remember too much,
my mother said to me recently.
Why hold onto all that? And I said,
Where can I put it down?
This week is a wave of opportunity to change directions and shift into different realities. Expect the unexpected, as your old viewpoints dissolve. Leave the views of the crowd behind and embrace your ability to rise above the mediocrity of the many. Like the eagle, you are meant for greater things.
And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.
He who knows others is clever;
he who knows himself is wise.
He who masters others is strong;
he who masters himself is powerful.
