More powerful than we know

If we do not seek variation, we end up dead in life, shutting out those new experiences that keep our hearts and minds active. Our horizons shrink, our learning will stagnate, and we will become nothing but creatures of habit.*
Anna Katharina Schaffner

A clear sense of self-directed meaning provides us with an essential inexhaustible supply of motivation.**
Steven Hayes

We are more powerful than we know.
We can endlessly alter ourselves,
Regrowing from the bountiful resources we carry within,
Season after season, following
death with life.
Of course, there are some who
seem powerful, pushing or
ordering others around,
But they are powerless to change themselves.
