Daily Zen - Thursday, May 23

The only way you will ever awaken 
is through the silence, not through
analyzation of facts. Not by sorting out 
good and bad, but through simple silence, 
letting go. Letting go of all thoughts, all 
the hurts, all the dogmas and concepts. 
Letting go these things daily.

~ Robert Adams

Do more than belong: participate.
Do more than care: help.
Do more than believe: practice.
Do more than be fair: be kind.
Do more than forgive: forget.
Do more than dream: work.

to the voice within you,

Permanence, perseverance, and 
persistence in spite of all obstacles,
discouragements, and impossibilities.
It is this that in all things distinguishes
the strong soul from the weak.

to cast off one's chains, 
but to live in a way that 
respects and enhances 
the freedom of others.
