“Life isn’t finding shelter in the storm.

It’s about learning to dance in the rain.”

“Most people miss their whole lives, you know.

 

Listen, life isn’t when you are standing on top of a mountain looking at a sunset.

Life isn’t waiting at the altar

or the moment your child is born

or that time you were swimming in a deep water and a dolphin came up alongside you.

 

These are fragments.

10 or 12 grains of sand spread throughout your entire existence.

 

These are not life.

 

Life is brushing your teeth

or making a sandwich

or watching the news

or waiting for the bus.

Or walking.

 

Every day, thousands of tiny events happen

and if you’re not watching,

if you’re not careful,

if you don’t capture them and make them COUNT,

your could miss it.

 

You could miss your whole life.”

“Be like water making its way through cracks.

 

Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it.

If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water.

If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup.

You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle.

You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot.

 

Now, water can flow or it can crash.

 

Be water, my friend.”

“I think the only way to get through this life is laughing hard and constantly,

mostly at myself.”
