|Not every crossing point has a gate.|
Some roads lead to less safe intersections then others
(but you might have no way of knowing that the first time around).
Sometimes stopping is the only sensible choice.
ummm ... it's not exactly that I'm not thinking ... I am thinking. Not a huge fan of Mr. Chopra, but he does express with the following quote more what I was attempting to say with my panning thing, engaged yet detached ... caring and not caring ... it is a bit like flow.
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. ~Steve Jobs
We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
~ Albert Einstein
Fear stifles our thinking and actions. It creates indecisiveness that results in stagnation.
I have known talented people who procrastinate indefinitely rather than risk failure.
Lost opportunities cause erosion of confidence, and the downward spiral begins.
~ Charles Stanley
Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.
~ Albert Einstein
If you're studying for an exam you're not thinking about the results. If you're always worried about the results, you can't study a lot. So to be engaged and detached from the outcome is excellent. Excellence is behavior. I mean, isn't that what martial arts is about? And that's what meditation is about, that's what, in many ways, sports are about. ~ Deepak Chopra
If everyone is thinking alike,
then somebody isn't
George S. Patton
Pride is an independent, me-oriented spirit. It makes people arrogant, rude and hard to get along with. When our heart is prideful, we don't give God the credit and we mistreat people, looking down on them and thinking we deserve what we have.
Faith is an oasis in the heart which will never be reached by the caravan of thinking. ~ Khalil Gibran.
Part of every misery is, so to speak, the misery's shadow or reflection:
the fact that you don't merely suffer but have to keep on thinking about the fact that you suffer.
I not only live each endless day in grief, but live each day thinking about living each day in grief.
|Some of the boxcars along my train of thought |
are scribble scrabbled on.
