The cultural critic and writer Maria Popova wrote, “Life is a continuous process of arrival, into who we really are. Life keeps presenting the lessons we need to learn, until we finally learn them and trust who we are.”
It may be trite, but its true: Imitation is limitation.
Authenticity on the other hand, whilst being an alien concept to most politicians, is like a light to a moth ….. simply irresistible.
As the Zen saying goes, “A bird has no fear of the branch breaking, because its trust is not on the branch but in its own wings.”
And talking of moth’s ……
A moth goes to see a podiatrist…..
Podiatrist: What’s the problem?
Moth: I’m feeling really low. I don’t know what I’m doing with my life. My wife’s left me, my kids never visit me and my mother died last week. I’ve got a job I hate, no real friends and I worry all the time. I can’t sleep, keep hearing noises and feel exhausted.
Podiatrist: You need to see a psychiatrist. Why have you come here?
Moth: Your light was on.
My husband was unhappy with my mood swings, so he bought me a mood ring.
He thought that this would allow him to monitor my moods.
We’ve discovered that when I’m in a good mood, it turns green, and when I’m in a bad mood it leaves a big red mark on his forehead.
Maybe next time he’ll buy me a diamond.
Live big & love deep.
