“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
~ J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
Another turn around the sun…and what would you do?
There is a quote that says: “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.”
It also says that the definition of “insanity” is: “Doing the Same Old Things & Expecting Different Results”
If things have worked well for you so far, if you are healthy, happy, in peace and walk with the knowledge that what you do contributes to other people’s and being’s wellbeing, then you should continue doing what you have been doing…
But for most of us, life is a constant quest, a roller-coaster and an evolution where we are always looking to become better people (inside and outside).
This Year that starts soon, I propose this to you:
“Sitting at our back doorsteps, all we need to live a good life lies about us. Sun, wind, people, buildings, stones, sea, birds and plants surround us. Cooperation with all these things brings harmony, opposition to them brings disaster and chaos.” ~ Bill Mollison, Introduction to Permaculture
