515

Absolutely himself. Surrendering to his element.

In loving memory
MRH

514

The span, it provokes as ever. Calls you onward, inward.

O presence and depth, unhesitant further.

Enthral the skin
Drench the mind in peace,
the soul in Ecstasy.

513

Be resourceful with your action. Success is a reality that needs to be acted on.

Patrick King

512

Never under compulsion, out of selfishness, without forethought, without misgivings. No surplus words or unnecessary actions. Let the spirit in you represent a man. Taking up his post like a soldier and patiently awaiting his recall from life. Needing no oath or witness. Cheerfulness. Without requiring other people’s help. Or serenity supplied by others. To stand up straight, not straightened.

Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

511: World Book Day

When I have a little money, I buy books; and if I have any left, I buy food and clothes.

Erasmus

510: thrive

Autonomy – freedom to choose

Mastery – opportunity to be challenged, to enjoy the challenge, and improve

Purpose – contributing something meaningful to the Whole

509

Sometimes, progress = not getting what you wanted, but, just getting a little closer to it.

508: Space

How long you have denied the mind it’s quiet and the skin it’s thrill. The gentle heart, enthralled and contained, the space to replevin and elate.

507: These daily

See that your principles remain.

Value over Resistance.

Enable, rather than do.

Initiate, or delay.

506

Simplicity – avoiding the “Curse of Knowledge” and drilling down to the fundamental principles.

Resilience – autonomic, psychic, somatic.

Flow – experiencing things as they are, in real time, rather than as they ‘should’ be.
