So there's a truth. Most of us fail, and we always pay the price - with every lie we surrender a little of our peace of mind, because we never lie only once; a single lie births ten others. The trick I suppose, is to make the effort to be truthful, for nothing liberates us like the truth. A life of simplicity is impossible without it. And it is the same with forgiveness and letting go. We clutter up our life with grievances, hurts and regrets when we cannot forgive..~Ruskin Bond
'Finish everyday and be done with it', wrote Emerson.'You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt, crept in. Forget them as soon as you can, today is a new day; begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.We cannot undo what we have done, but we can earn a second chance..~ An excerpt from Ruskin Bond's book.
Into the woods on an October afternoon. I lie in the sun on sweet -smelling grass, and gaze up through a pattern of Oak leaves into a building blue heaven. And I praise God for leaves and grass and the smell of things-- the smell of mint and bruised clover -- and the touch of things -- the touch of grass and air and the sky's blueness.I praise God for all the love.
