Thus we see that the all-important thing is not killing or giving life, drinking or not drinking, living in the town or the country, being lucky or unlucky, winning or losing. It is how we win, how we lose, how we live or die; finally, how we choose. We walk, and our religion is shown (even to the dullest and most insensitive person), in how we walk. Living in this world means choosing, and the way we choose to walk is infallibly and perfectly expressed in the walk itself.
~R. H. Blyth
James's comment: I thought this was a great teaching on keeping perspective. I often walk too fast. I think this is a sign that I am not always in the present moment but rather trying to force the future. I need to slow down and give myself plenty of time so that I do not have to rush around everywhere.
