A New Beautiful Every Day

There are those of us who are adventurous in a way that provides a motivation to explore new horizons and experiences. There are also those of us who are adventurous in an inner way, exploring how they are different from moment to moment - because all that is alive is constantly being renewed, replaced by a new self that presents itself differently for each occasion.

Thich Nhat Hahn puts it this way: "It is because of impermanence that everything is possible. Our hope lies in impermanence."

Or, as the Lubavitcher Rebbe explains, continuous newness represents a fusion of time and timelessness. So one can do the "same" thing many times but - with the right energy - it can be new and vital each time.

The sun is not bounded by our ideas of ourselves and - here's the good part - neither are we. Whenever, wherever we let go of those self-limiting ideas, we have an opening through which we might enter the state of "continuous newness".

Like a new beautiful, every day.

    While I am writing the list of [url=https://www.resumehelpservices.com/]best resume writing service 2021[/url] , I was thinking of this article. Life is beautiful and we should always see it that way no matter how challenging it is right now. Sunset is my favorite view of the day. For me, it's a proof that endings can always be beautiful too. Some people think endings can either be sad or ugly.
