Tuesdays Quote

Enlightenment is like the moon reflected in a dewdrop on a blade of grass. The moon does not get wet, nor, the drop of water broken. And the whole moon and entire sky are reflected in even one drop of water.

Lots of things to think about in this beautiful quote. The relative size of things for one. How can a single dew drop reflect something as huge as a moon, and a sky? The dewdrop is held on a blade of grass, but the grass does not bend with the weight of the image. Interesting!

Use your unique viewpoint to look at something differently. What we see daily can change dramatically if we change our point of view. Art is a great example, where the image changes dependent on the angle from which we view.

View Tuesday differently, as a day more value able than the second day of the work week.

Have a new Tuesday.
