Live for Others

Β IMG_1267

Earth and sky exist for aeons because
they have no personal desires. Wisdom is
found by people who live for others. The
wise do not seek to be first, but to be last.
Those who deny themselves find security
in being selfless; thus, they are fulfilled.

  1. I can only offer simple agreement to this post..I am most fulfilled when I am centered on helping someone else…especially when we succeed together. love, Katie.

    • Being there for others if they need the help is very crucial. Furthermore, I think it is also important that they ask for it, and you not force yourself or your help upon them.

  2. I am always amazed at what you can grow outside within your garden Eddie… Here these ‘Sail plants’ can only be grown indoors in pot plants.
    Wonderful quote too my friend πŸ™‚

    • There are multiple pots of these growing here; but they are all in pots. Frost is not as much a problem as for the fact that these plants will easily spread if not contained (restricted) to a pot. If frost does theaten then they are covered.
      Thank you Sue for your interest, kindness, dear heart.
