"...yesterday i was clever, so i wanted to change the world. today i am wise, so i decided to change myself..." (rumi)
the world as we know it will change.
there's little we can do about it (but by no means does this mean that we should do nothing!)
however, there is much we can do to ourselves and how we chose to act / react / respond to change.
"...in a sense, every second is a point of no return..." (anon)
i didn't plan to take this path. yeah right :P
well, things happen - for better or for worse. for now, i am happy :)
on another note - certain realisations make me more, um, cautious, i suppose. did you know that solomon ordered his army to not step on the ants as they marched? well i don't know for sure, but that says a lot. a most powerful king ordered his most powerful army to not step on ants...
(i've to stop exterminating cockroaches on sight out of spite)
