I am taking a watercolor class. This is our first assignment. I do not like the results in any way. Most likely, I will finish this and try to repaint this project again before class. However, I’ve decided to memorialize this mess on the blog because ultimately, a work in progress is still progress. I still made time to get something done, and the only way to improve is to pick up the brushes and make mistakes.
2015 has officially begun. As I was reading today, I came across a quote which sums my perspective as we begin yet another trip around our sun.
“What if religion was each other?
If our practice was our life?
If prayer was our words?
What if the temple was the Earth?
If forests were our church?
If holy water – the rivers, lakes, and oceans?
What if meditation was our relationships?
If the Teacher was life?
If wisdom was self-knowledge?
If love was the center of our being.”
Ganga White, founder of the White Lotus Foundation
Here is to a year in which love is the center of our being!
