The best of opportunities are not without the greatest of compromises.

The peaceful heart can find stillness amidst the chaos, can be at ease in the face of difficulty, is a home unto itself wherever it goes.

Balance cannot be found at the extremes, but is always found by returning to the core, by finding the center. Where balance can be found with outstretched limb, stronger still the core must remain.

《What Is, What Wills》

Once upon the deep, dwelled two pairs of seafaring lovers.

Both lived rather normal lives aboard their ships on the sea, full of ups and downs, as anyone would expect to see upon the sea.

On calm seas, both pairs made love with the illimitable passion of lovers held at bay.

But the sky does what a sky wills, and so oft brewed blackened clouds with the inevitable unknown beyond. It was in these times that the difference between the lovemakers was never more lucid.

For when the storms blew in, as only a fool could deny the inevitability of, the seasoned couple ceased their lovemaking, wisely understanding their lovemaking to be powerless against warding off the mighty storm. To them, worry was a more worthy and more rewarding charm.

The other couple continued to make love like only reckless lovers knew, much to the chagrin of the other lovers. And it was true that the lovers’ lovemaking did nary a thing to make the storm go away, to shorten the waves, or to lessen the impact.

Also true was it, that the cessation of the other lovers’ lovemaking neither did anything to encourage the passing of the storm.

For a truth is a truth as is a sail a sail. Wisdom lies in wielding a truth, not simply holding a truth.

For in the end, to the common eye, it was plain to see that lovemaking -and its lack thereof- had absolutely nary a thing to do with the coming of the storm, the size of the storm, nor the passing of the storm.

With the passing of a storm, what remained for the eye to see was but two sets of lovers at sea and two kinds of love as they so fit to see.

One, a weakened bond of fair weather lovers, who made love only when the sea was calm, losing only the opportunity to love each other through and so weather a storm together.

The other, a strengthened bond between the lovers, who made love without regard to a storm (or was it very much with regard to the storm?), losing only themselves in each other whether or not came the weather.

For a storm is what only a storm wills, and love is only what love wills.

Hold in your heart what is dear, let go of the rest.

Peace belongs to no one, if it belongs not to all.

Freedom belongs to no one, if it belongs not to all.

No matter the color of skin, all hearts are red through.

In aphorism, proverb on 20110807 at 20:54

Indecision is a decision.

Action speaks louder than words; lack of action, even louder.

“will let go” is but “to let go”; the future is but the infinitive.
“let go” is but “letting go”; the past tense is but the present continuous.

A fool drops what the wise let go.

Save a few that go dormant, plants continue to grow until there is no more life left -sometimes in visible spurts of vertical growth, other times in invisible hardiness.

Sometimes it takes a storm to quench a flower’s thirst.

The physical blossoms when the emotional is nourished, not diseased.

Time has the patience of infinity.

Reflections are real.

《northern damsel》
curvy and long-legged
gorgeous and dangerous, go slowly-
white-out on US-41.

Superstition is religion without the tool of conversion.

A threat made is an insecurity laid.

Thoughts manifest in our actions, escape via our voice.

A memory is a hard thing to let go of; a fantasy, even harder.

In aphorism, poetry, proverb, rumination on 20110227 at 11:09

Who discovers the world without discovering the self has fooled oneself twice.

Fantasy may not be feasible, but it is not futile.

Music is an elixir that allows the brain to just be.

To refuse is to resist;
To need, is to subsist;
To desire, is to exist;
To give, is not to have missed.

To dream without living is an illusion; to live without dreaming is quietus.

The fool are careless with sparks in a dry field.

The fool open a can of worms without intention of going fishing.

In aphorism, chinese, proverb on 20110206 at 11:57

Tis better to let go than to lose. 扔不如送。

The scab that bleeds has yet to heal.

Fear bears preconceptions, breeds misunderstanding.

To only eat and sleep is more tiresome than to exercise. 光吃光睡比锻炼还要累。
