Hexagram / Principle 58 -- JOY

I want to be like water,
to dance with each moment
without holding onto the past.

I want to be liquid and forgiving.

I want to put yielding into life
instead of judgment.

I want to curl around stones
instead of hurl them.

I want my movements to be
informed by oneness.

I want to be a living yes.

Your comment on my blog was more beautiful, however.

Thank you.

What a wonderful picture.
The choice to curl around stones instead of hurling them opens a door to the Heaven - enables us to hear our own heart and brings to the wonderland of art where temporal problems have no place - where each brush stroke rejoices over the eternal values.

I like your blog. It refreshes and inspires. Thank you
