He who Learns

He who learns but does not think is lost! He who thinks but does not learn is in great danger.~Confucious

I laughed when I saw this the other day, as it reminded me of the many times of learning things “the hard way.” Often ignoring the clues or signs, I continued making the same mistakes as before. But! as soon as I became aware of the lessons, they ceased to destroy me.

Opposing the many times of learning, there were times of over analyzing things…never reaching my goals. While both bring despair, we need only find balance within. Finding balance within and the logic behind learning versus thinking things through, we find peace in our steps within the Canvas of Life.

Stepping into the Canvas with new eyes. Eyes that see not only in the darkest of hours but in the brightest of days. Eyes that cut through to the truth of all there is, lending us knowledge that existed inside the self all along…
