“Ignore time.
Relinquish ideas and concepts.
Embrace the Oneness.

This is the Integral Way.”

Lao Tzu
Hua Hu Ching

    Gosh Callahan! I don’t know what to respond to first–the quote or the photo of the tulips! You have succeeded in saying so much in so little space! I admire you! I often am a slave to time and would like to ignore it. And ideas, yes please! Not really…but the ONENESS is something I reach for in my Daily Creative Practice. I’m copying this saying down. Thank you and for the bright colorful spring flowers!

      thanks for your response Carol. Think there is no real classroom other than where we are at any given moment. Me too, grasping for the moments of one-ness, a dance that comes and goes.

    Callahan, I feel that I am still such a student, yet one with no real classroom. How do I ‘relinquish ideas and concepts’ that I am yet learning? You are the teacher, the master. At midlife I am trying each day to make myself one with the inspiration, but I find myself not satisfied. How do you embrace the oneness and be satisfied? How does one become a vase of tulips, an impromptu installation?

    I love this quote – it is a “meaty” quote – there are alot of way to look at these words. The tulips are amazing – I wished they lasted longer because they are such a joy to see the brief time they are here

      thanks Vickie. I guess in that way the tulips don’t last very long so goes our journey. I noticed this morning how beautiful they are even as blooms fall apart.
