Wiggling Toes Roses
Non Nobis Solem
Can the obvious truly be that blinding?
Chapter LXIII from the 'Tao Te Ching'
Do that which consists in taking no action;
Make the small big and the few many;
Lay plans for the accomplishment of the difficult before it becomes difficult;
Difficult things in the word must needs have their beginnings in the easy;
Therefore it is because the sage never attempts to be great that he succeeds in becoming great.
One who makes promises rashly rarely keeps good faith;
Therefore even the sage treats some things as difficult.
- Lao Tzu, D.C. Lau's translation.
A Masai Shaaman reveals his secret
"Of all the magic, from every tribe that ever the Sun sees fit to set upon, the most powerfull spell of them all is this: not having to use any."
What point would there be to sadden Our hearts thinking thoughts of how too late by far it is to have the little things done We wish they had thought of seven generations ago?! It is as oxen breath on a Winter's day long ago, and We can not reach back far enough to even clutch in futility at those whisps of fog, We could do nothing about it, We of the now were powerless then.
But that was then, the tables have turned, now it is We who wield the keys of power.
By Heavens then, let Us think now for Our Great-Great-Grandchildren and their Great-Great-Grandchildren, and with happy hearts indeed do what little We can for them now, to raise such foundations as to afford them even better choices with which to improve their world.
