Find your centre

You Are The Center Of Your Own Universe [Secret To Not Give A Fuck]

Wise souls, leaving self behind

Move forward

And setting self aside

Stay centered

So why let the self go?

To keep what the soul needs.

Ursula K Le Guin Tao Te Ching

Chuang-tzu once told a story about two persons who both lost a sheep. One person got very depressed and lost himself in drinking and gambling to try to forget this misfortune.

The other person decided that this would be an excellent chance for him to study the classics and quietly observe the subtleties of nature.

Both men experienced the same misfortune, but one man lost himself because he was too attached to the experience of loss, while the other found himself because he was able to let go.

When we feel stuck and trapped in our limited stories

Create some space

Pause

Lose yourself

Find your Centre

What does your soul need?

  1. To finally see the forest for the tree’s, so to speak. It did take some work to step back and not be so ‘focused’ on living…and see the life around it. Great post Karen, thank you πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

  2. Learning to let go is probably one of the hardest things to do, but so important in moving on and flowing. I think we all need to give ourselves more space to grow. Wonderful post Karen.

  3. Timeless wisdom you post and discuss here, Karen. For everyone who lives life, this is the one essential piece of wisdom to hold dear, as it becomes so necessary to find yourself so you can let go. Beautiful.

  4. That’s exactly how we let go Randall. The challenge is to create stillness each day to find our deepest sense of self and to let go of the rest. This wisdom changed my life. Thank you πŸ™πŸ»
