Tools for Intentional Living & Transformation

The Edge of Center

Leave a comment

All tempest has,

like a navel,

a hole in its middle,

through which

a gull can fly,

in silence.

Fourteen Century Japanese, Anonymous

At the heart of all struggle there is a peaceful enduring center. All we need to do is reach it…

Yet the paradox of life is carried here. For the gull flies through the peaceful center, yet it does not live there…
