You Might Be Surprised What's On The Horizon

Parua Bay - Whangarei Harbour North Island New Zealand

As he sailed away he knew this: - wherever he sailed on this planet, if he keep a constant course he would always come back to where he had started - and this was the hard won realisation that had been his lifes work, it was this that gave it meaning. He had realised that : - The destination is the same as the starting point - - from heart beat to heart beat - the awareness of the beauty, richness and truth of each moment is the beginning and end of all wisdom - he was Awake!

Its not a quotation its a life realisation of my own, but of course it is rooted in the Buddhist concept of mindfulness, the ablility to live life moment by moment - easier said than done!
