As you walk your path, do not be distracted from ensuring it is consistently deep. Some will endeavour to persuade you to shallowly skip through carelessly.
A deep walled path protects from the weather and the elements.
A shallow path lends risk of you being simply washed away.
It takes real ears to listen to the words spoken to another that resonate as if unknowingly spoken for you.
Take your time before exhibiting reaction.
Reactions are driven by feelings, and while they are important, it’s more graceful to react with thought.
Trust is like fire.
The same thing that warms you heartily, can burn deeply.
Mind is carefully, and extinguish at the first feeling of being singed.
A lie cuts through trust, smashes loyalty, but reveals a truth about the owner of the tongue..
Look past the fact the lie was told and quash the hurt with kindness, and by considering why the person felt the need to. The lie is the least of the liars problems.
Most anyone had exhibit the illusion of power by trying to dominate those weaker than themselves.
However, true power is a refined recipe of self-awareness, knowledge, understanding, compassion and, if you can find some because it is a rare ingredient, grace.
Be mindful what you keep in your pockets longer than you need.
Pockets filled with fear, grudges or regrets will only weigh you down.
And whatever you carry in your pockets, is likely to be what you produce from them for all to see.
