HOW CAN THE DROPS……

“How can the drop of water know themselves to be a river?”

As individuals the drops may not seem like much but as a whole river they appear powerful.

A single snow flake is so beautiful in design but a blizzard can cause so much chaos.

ONE WORD – TO A WISE MAN

“One word – to a wise man. One lash – to a bright horse.”

Sometimes all that is needed is a few words or action.

THE WAY IS NOT A MATTER

“The way is not a matter of knowing or not knowing.”

It’s a matter of realization and being in the now. It’s about realize that you may know a lot and yet know nothing.

It’s a matter of following and not following a certain path.

SHAPE CLAY INTO A POT

“We shape clay into a pot, but it is the emptiness inside that holds whatever we want.”

We can shape our lives but it is what we allow in our lives that matter. We have the power to allow whatever we want in and discard what we don’t.

The pot is your life, how are you going to shape it and what are you going to put in it?

A GREAT WIND – ZEN

” Sometimes I go about in pity for myself, and all the while a great wind is bearing me across the sky. “

Basically you may feel bad about yourself or your situation and in reality things aren’t that bad. They could be worst. Know that bad times in your life are nothing more than mere moments that will pass and you will move on to greater things.

FOOD SELF DEFENSE / ZEN MESSAGE

Good Morning,

Let’s get right to it today shall we?

Self Defense takes on so many different forms. It is not all about the physical. Self Defnese is not just you defending yourself from a physical attack from someone else. Self Defense can be and is related to your health, fitness, mind, relationships, finances, education, and so forth. But let’s talk about self defense as it pertains to your health. Or further yet let’s talk about food. One way to make sure you are staying healthy and practicing self defense from getting sick and getting diseases is to make sure you eat properly.  I’m gonna put it real simple here. EAT REAL FOODS. You know, the foods that grow from the ground, and comes from animals. Foods that nature provides us. Fruits, vegetables, plants, herbs, meat, and water. Well water is not food but you get the point. Real foods. ANy food that has to be manufactured in a factory is not considered real foods. A few examples are chips, twinkies, chocolate bars, candy, and etc., You want to help reduce the changes of future health problems, try eating whole real foods more often. Don’t become obsessed with it right away. Make some changes in your nutrition planning. Small changes over time build up to huge results.

It’s a ZEN message foryou to think about today.

“When you are deluded and full of doubt, even a thousand books of scripture are not enough.When you have realized understanding, even one word is too much.”

That’s all for today folks,
