Finding the Divine in the Details

Waiting till the mud settles



Gleanings here and there:

When the urgent crowds out the important, people urgently accomplish nothing of value.
~ Orrin Woodward

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.

~ Dr. Bob Moorehead Iceland 004

Do you have the patience to wait

till your mud settles and the water is clear?

Can you remain unmoving

till the right action arises by itself?

~Tao Te Ching

  1. Hi Phyllis, got a message today to pay particular attention to your next post. It was such a truly loving reflection of what I needed to hear. Thank you!

  2. I always thought I was an extremely patient person, but impatience has become my nagging companion. Good reminder for sure. Impatience stirs up the internal mud and muck!
