Stability Vs Mobility

Shiva the Lord of the Dance

“Listen, O lord of the meeting rivers, things standing shall fall, but the moving ever shall stay.”


“What makes you stuck?” Dick Cavett asks.

“Well, everywhere I went, led me where I didn’t want to be,” Paul Simon says. “So I was stuck.”


There are moments that cry out to be fulfilled.
Like telling someone you love them.
Or giving your money away, all of it.
Your heart is beating, isn’t it?
You’re not in chains, are you?
There is nothing more pathetic than caution
when headlong might save a life,
even, possibly, your own.

:: Mary Oliver
