Point of view

View of snow on Ben Lomond yesterday, Tasmania.


“An ant can’t define the shape of an elephant solely from its’ point of view. They have to unify all views. It’s a way for an ant to understand an elephant. In order to understand true realities, men need to do mental blending.”
~ Toba Beta

(for my buddy Ralph) Now, that’s a stick…

“Understand others and grow wise.
Understand yourself and become enlightened.

Conquering others requires force.
Conquering yourself takes power.

Knowing sufficiency, find abundance.
Act with the strength of resolution.

Hold your place and endure.
Who dies without perishing lives on.”

~ Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching


“I have met with but one or two persons in the course of my life who understood the art of Walking, that is, of taking walks ~ who had a genius, so to speak, for sauntering.”
~ Henry David Thoreau
