Monday Quote ...

If you follow me on Twitter you might've seen this quote I tweeted last Friday. I thought it would be a great thought to start our week with. It's a quote from the book I'm reading right now, The Power of Now (which I've referenced before) by Eckhart Tolle. Tolle goes on to say ...

As long as you are in conscious contact with your inner body, you are like a tree that is deeply rooted in the earth, or a building with a deep and solid foundation. The latter analogy is used by Jesus in the generally misunderstood parable of the two men who build a house. One man builds it on the sand, without a foundation, and when the storms and floods come, the house is swept away. The other man "digs deep" until he reaches the rock, then builds his house, which is not swept away by the floods.

You get the idea. Dig deep (you can do it!) and have a solid week everyone!

I never thought of that parable that way, in that he dug deeper, not built more. I love that. I need to remember this daily. Thank you!

i needed to read this today, right now...

it honestly brings a sense of power, and calm to an anxious mind (who keeps focusing on the million things that have to be done). i've read his other book and know his philosophy on "being", but it's necessary to be reminded now and again.

thank you!

(also, wanted to let you know that we finished listening to 'rich dad, poor dad'... looooved it.) :)
