“On the death of a friend, we should consider that the fates through confidence have devolved on us the task of a double living,
that we have henceforth to fulfill the promise of our friend’s life also,
in our own, to the world.” 

Quote: Henry David Thoreau

Mistakes are not mistakes…


Of all the pitfalls in our paths and the tremendous delays and wanderings off the track I want to say that they are not what they seem to be. I want to say that all that seems like fantastic mistakes are not mistakes, all that seems like error is not error; and it all has to be done.

That which seems like a false step is the next step.

Become love

If you want to know God,
become love. If you want
to know others, become love.
If you want to know yourself,
become love. And if you want
to know love, forget all you
thought you knew or needed
to know, and become love.

Quote: Meister Eckhart, 1260 – c. 1328 (German theologian, philosopher and mystic

found in Mindfulbalance (Karl Duffy)
