Quotes of the day... 7/21/15

“There are so many things 
we can’t do anything about 
if we think about generalities. 
Things won’t go well because 
there is a huge gap between 
the generalities and the particulars. 
If we see generalities 
from the top of a mountain or from a plane, 
we feel it’s hopeless, but if we go down, 
there is a nice road running about fifty meters, 
we feel this is a nice road, 
and if the weather is fine and shining, 
we feel we can go on… 
Since the people in the community 
are cleaning up the river in my neighborhood, 
I join them when I have the time. A human 
can often be satisfied with the particulars. 
That’s what I like best these days.” 
     ~ Hayao Miyazaki

“As soon as you honor the present moment, 
all unhappiness and struggle dissolve, 
and life begins to flow with joy and ease. 
When you act out the present-moment awareness, 
whatever you do becomes imbued 
with a sense of quality, care and love—
even the most simple action.” 
     ~Eckhart Tolle
