“Take Risks” / “Look Under Your Feet”
“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.” (Lao Tzu)
“Promise yourself to live your life as a revolution and not just a process of evolution.” (Anthony J. D’Angelo)

“When you hear ‘Repent for your past,’ realize it’s a great religious distraction from waking up. Wake up! That’s what repent means. Not ‘weep for your sins.’ Wake up! Stop all the crying. Understand! Wake up!” (Anthony De Mello)
“None of us can predict with certainty the twists and turns our lives will take. Life is uncertain, the future unknown. This is neither good nor bad. It just is, like gravity. Yet the task remains: how to master our own fate, even so.” (Jim Collins and Morten Hansen, Great by Choice: Uncertainty, Chaos, and Luck — Why Some Thrive Despite Them All)
“The lesson which life constantly repeats is to ‘look under your feet.’
You are always nearer to the divine and the true sources of your power than you think.
The lure of the distant and the difficult is deceptive.
The great opportunity is where you are.
Do not despise your own place and hour.
Every place is under the stars.
Every place is the center of the world.” (John Burroughs)
“We are here on Earth to do good to others. What others are here for, I don’t know.” (W.H. Auden)
