|the Leaning Tree|
Sometimes we feel just a little off. Like something is lingering.
This was an interesting shot of this leaning tree.
It seems out of place. Just a bit. But yet, it is still in balance with it's surroundings.
I think we all get out of tilt at times. Finding the right framework to stay balanced is difficult.
This following story is very simple but so true.
We all fall into this 'framework' in our lives.
"There’s an old Sufi story about a man who dropped his keys on the dark side of the street at night, then crossed the street to the lamppost where it was bright to look for the keys. When a friend asked why he was looking under the lamp instead of where he dropped the keys, he replied, “I’m looking here because there is more light.”
That’s what we do with our lives: the familiar framework is where we want to look. If we have a problem, we follow a familiar framework: thinking, stewing, analyzing, keeping the crazy business of our lives going because that’s what we’re used to doing.
Never mind that it doesn’t work. We just get more determined, and keep searching under the lamp-post."
Let's try not to search for things where we know they will not be!
