Mandala #223 – Absinthe IV

If you’re in a state of loving appreciation in each of your present moments, you’re letting go of the absurd idea that you’re here to accumulate rewards and merit badges for your efforts. Seek the pleasure in what you’re doing, rather than in how it might ultimately benefit you.

Wayne W Dyer

Mandala #221 – Absinthe II

There are many ways to talk about the problems of the world, but one way or another, all of them have to do with polarization. We all have a tendency to divide people, things, and ideas into sharply contrasting categories. Consciously or unconsciously, we carry around concepts of “us” and “them”, “right” and “wrong”, “worthy” and “unworthy”.

Pema Chödrön
