Daily Intention

In these days filled with stress about moving, not being able to control the process myself because of a bad back and constant fatigue, I come each morning seeking inspiration.

Intention

I set my intention to stay spiritually grounded.

Within all the spiritual traditions, short and sweet wisdom abounds: from mantras and blessings to 12-step slogans and proverbs, and more. As philosopher George Santayana once said: “To be brief is almost a condition of being inspired.” In this blog, I will take up the quest for small seeds of spiritual wisdom, which can be found everywhere if we keep our eyes and ears open.

In the end, everyone is our teacher, on one leverl or another. The child is our teacher, our friends, our family, the stranger on the street…Every thought that bubbles up in our minds can teach us things about ourselves, if we are able to listen.
