"Life is a journey, not a destination..." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson (...but Aerosmith said it, too.)

Explore. February 20, 2009.

 

To be without desires, is to be content.

If you do not wish to have something,

you are content with what you have.

 

And it always seems to me that,

the more we don't desire something,

the greater the chance of getting it,

and all the more exciting.

 

To be without desire,

is to be simple.

If life is simple,

then life is not complicated!!!

 

~ from the wisdom of Lao Tzu

 

(Yes, it's all about the journey. The colours and light seen. The lessons learned. The friends met and kept. The ride... Not the stop-overs. Not the destination. It is the ride that counts. 'Get it?)
