    Impermanence is the fountain of youth!

    When effort is needed, effort will appear. When effortlessness becomes essential, it will assert itself. You need not push life about. Just flow with it and give yourself completely to the task of the present moment, which is the dying now to the now. For living is dying. Without death, life cannot be. ~ Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (Important message at…

I love the French expression “reculer pour mieux sauter” (step back to jump better), which nicely sums up the idea that we function best with a bit of perspective.
