Catmasutra - Equilibrium

"Truth tell, anywhere is a life, once there is a love."

Your personal history is the history of the world. Just that you don't know it yet. The choices that we make, the thoughts that we think - they all leave an imprint. Moment to moment, we live as if we didn't matter and as if we are the only ones that matter. "There are so many things that we nearly do and they don't matter at all, and then there are so many things we nearly do that would change everything... "

And there's always a moment in time when we know we are right in the middle, between heaven and earth, light and dark, happiness and sadness - perfect equilibrium. It could be anywhere, while vacationing or being at home, watching a waterfall or simply watching the sky, the moment when you forget yourself, when you're completely calm and peaceful, there it is, even if you did not recognize it. In William Blake's words, " To see the world in a grain of sand, and to see heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hands, and eternity in an hour."

"The universe is an imprint - it imprints you, you imprint it. You cannot separate yourself from the imprint, and you can never forget it. It isn't something, it is you." Life is simple. What you give to life is what you get. Everything else are just excuses to blame something else. The more we try to control our life as though the universe is external to us, the more the world runs away from us. "In oneself lies the whole world and if you know how to look and learn, the door is there and the key is in your hand..." Krishnamurti

"Here is a moment in time, and my choices have been no stranger than millions before me, displaced by wars and conscience, leaving the known for the unknown, hesitating, fearing, then finding themselves already on the journey, footprint and memory each imprinting the trail: what you had, what you lost, what you found, no matter how difficult or impossible, the moment when time became a bridge and you crossed it."
