Topic: The Best of Your Wisdom
So in addition to the "Mastering the Lower Self" book that I'm slowly writing, I had an idea today about putting together a slim, communally written book containing wisdoms for those of us who wish to live as harmoniously as possible with the Earth and others.
If this idea goes anywhere, I wouldn't publish it under my name or anybody's name. It'd be anonymous. What I want to create is a "Tao Te Ching" of sorts that doesn't teach a Way of "walking the walk," but offers wisdoms that (hopefully) will help the reader make a mental shift away from destructive groupthink.
The vision is of a short, concise, poetic grouping of thoughts centered on basic themes, like:
*the interconnectivity of all things
*acting versus talking
*considering the consequences of your actions
*empathy and anti-empathy
*power within (thinking for yourself)
*hierarchies versus cell-like networks
Please feel to contribute your wisdoms here! Again, I'm looking for something short (less than 50 words), something that evokes an image, something that requires contemplation to digest, but most importantly, something that helps bring you into a healthy, balanced relationship with the planet and with others.
Here's the first bit to pop into my mind:
One hand is held
by your ancestors;
the other is held
by your children.
but you can avoid its teeth.
