Daily Inspiring Quote 2

‘It is impossible to be worried-free even when we reach the age of 40.
Different life problems come one after another –
career direction, family problems, parents’ healthy, the own future path…

Having learnt tea making for twenty years,
I still cannot attain the ‘nothingness’ state in heart.
My mind is filled with work issues,
things I need to handle when I return home.
Confusion, regret, worries keep coming up on me.

Self-arrogance – or what it really is, self-pride,
only becomes our own obstacles,
a baggage we cannot shake off.
We ought to put down these baggage’s,
clear our minds,
so that we can openly embrace all things.

– Morishita Noriko, Every Day is Good Day

“四十不惑“其实是不可能的,
人生不同的问题不断接踵而来,
包括就业的方向、家庭的问题、父母老后的问题、自己的未来。

学了二十年茶道,
我还是无法将心置于”无“之上,
满脑子工作的事,
老想着回去后还得处理的事情,
心理不断涌现迷茫、后悔、担心等情绪。

无聊的自傲,
只会成为自己的绊脚石、甩不掉的心理包袱。
一定要舍弃这些包袱,
让心净空无一物,
才能无所窒碍地容纳任何事物。

—森下典子 《日日是好日》
