Statement: The Japanese philosophy on wabi-sabi, which is the beauty of things imperfect, has a place in our psychology. The relentless pursuit of perfection — in possessions, relationships, achievements – often fosters hasty judgments. This is where wabi-sabi invites a pause. It opens space for acceptance and forgiveness, for mindfulness, for seeing the beauty of things flawed, including ourselves and our fellow human beings.
Statement: Every day we have on this planet is a gift, so let us use the time to love, encourage, build, and grow ourselves and others, leaving the world a better place than we found it. I love this quote by Kahlil Gibran; Your daily life is your temple and your religion. Whenever you enter into it, take with you your all.
Statement: Exercise your right to charter your course through life because if you don't know what you believe in, someone will come along and convince you to believe in their convictions. Consider these wise words by Aurelius, "Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth."
