I saw a good moon rising just before 2012

There is some hard won wisdom here, if you have time to listen to this emotional roller coaster of a documentary. Some of us were stuck, and this moved us forward in a way nothing else could have.

"Wisdom is a living stream, not an icon preserved in a museum. Only when we find the spring of wisdom in our own life can it flow to future generations."

(Thich Nhat Hanh)

Thinking of the future generations on this first day of 2012. Searching for my spring of wisdom. Listening. Paying attention. I saw a good moon rising.

what a beautiful picture. I have been enjoying watching the moon these past few nights as well.

Ah, to tap into the wisdom. That is the trick. To see the value in it when perhaps you are one of the very few who are seeking it. Is it better to be asleep or to be wise?
