Sunday Dinner: Changes

“In every change, in every falling leaf

there is some pain, some beauty.

And that’s the way new leaves grow.”


Amit Ray

“When we resist change, it’s called suffering.

But when we can completely let go

and not struggle against it,

when we can embrace

the groundlessness of our situation and relax

into it’s dynamic quality,

that’s called enlightenment”


Pema Chödrön

“Fret not where the road will take you.

Instead concentrate on the first step.

That’s the hardest part and that’s

what you are responsible for.

Once you take that step

let everything do what it naturally does

and the rest will follow.

Do not go with the flow.

Be the flow.”

through change; change is only possible

through movement.”

without suffering, for he is both the marble

and the sculptor”

“Anyone who knows me, should learn to know me again;
For I am like the Moon,
you will see me with new face everyday.”

  1. By the time autumn has done its thing, I am well ready for a bit of hibernation. I hope that means that “I am the flow” and not that I’m just a grumpy old bear.

  2. Beautiful post Woodland Gnome! The photos of autumn foliage are stunning and a perfect accompaniment to the quotes. Blessings, Sarah
