Thought for the day…

“You cannot stay on the summit forever. You have to come down again…One climbs and one sees; one descends and one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself…by the memory of what one saw up higher. When one no longer sees, one can at least still know.”
Rene Daumal

  1. A wonderful quote. I love it. I have an illness that stops me getting out much. When I was younger I did everything I had ambitions to do – travel, run my own business, collect, create, make friends, be very social etc. I was on my summit and thank goodness I got there, as now I have been forced down, I have so much to remember and so much that I still know and can cherish. Thanks for giving this to us!

    • Thank you so much for your moving reply…it so touched my heart. I love that wonderful experiences we have can be savoured for a lifetime. When I first travelled to India a friend commented “You could buy a new lounge for what you are spending to travel there.” But a couch could never provide me with the precious moments I’ve spent remembering my trips ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. What a thing for your friend to say! How could you possibly compare a couch to a trip to India? Anyway, wonderful quote. I am still working on bringing the sacred into the everyday…

    • I know…it seemed an amazing comment to me too. I love when I come back from the ashram in India and the feeling of peace and serenity lasts for so long ๐Ÿ™‚
