The importance of doing

Gandhi said that whatever you do in life will be insignificant, but it's very important that you do it. The phrase ends with "because nobody else will".

This is my favorite quote, although, with all due respect to Gandhi, I would like to change the end...

Whatever you do in life will be insignificant, but it's very important that you do it because we don't know how many future lives we might touch in doing so...and we probably never will.

And in the doing is were we find ourselves, in the struggle, and the fear is where, if we give ourselves a chance for failure, we mature and grow as individuals.

When we do things from the heart, coming from a place of love, the love grows and spreads far and wide and the whole world benefits from it.

I will tell you soon the insignificant things I'm working on as soon as they start taking shape.

To learn to see- to accustom the eye to calmness, to patience, and to allow things to come up to it; to defer judgment, and to acquire the habit of approaching and grasping an individual case from all sides. This is the first preparatory schooling of intellectuality. One must not respond immediately to a stimulus; one must acquire a command of the obstructing and isolating instincts.

I love no man the less, but Nature more.

Thank you Sunna . 22 A Million in front of my eyes

22 A million one more time 

These are the moment that make me think that everything its ok, no matter what worries me, bothers me or scares me about the world. These are the moments that are worth much more than anything money can buy. Life right in front of my eyes. 

Thank you Beautiful Sunna.

Að leggja höfuðið í bleyti - Finding new ways to do things today. 

There is an Icelandic say that goes like this:

Að leggja höfuðið í bleyti

Literally, it means "To lay your head in water" . Metaphorically, it means to take some time to think about something, maybe to find a solution to a problem or a new way to do things.

Doddi, was teaching me this today with our really knowing it.

Finding new ways to do things today. 

 

 

Almost nothing needs to be said when you have eyes - in Iceland
