The Whole World

“When you realize nothing is lacking, the whole world belongs to you.” (Lao Tzu)


The purr of a kitty cat
A delicious cup of coffee
A shave without a cut
The good old song on the radio
The touch of loving hands
The sight of a child’s smile
A broken engine
The meeting you missed
The spilled coffee on your shirt
The parts of you that feel shame
The hello you were too shy to give
The too many cookies of last night
Stop for a second to contemplate
How everything is meaningful
All experiences are complete
We are full of Life


We are full of Life.

  1. You actually make it seem really easy together with your presentation however I find this matter to be actually one thing that I believe I’d never understand. It seems too complex and very vast for me. I’m having a look forward in your subsequent publish, I will attempt to get the grasp of it!


    1. It is so very vast… once you get a glimpse of such completeness, it takes another step further, and there you are again, searching for it again… it’s almost like when we are in this world we can hold on to such completeness all the time, it’s a cycle, it’s inspiration, it’s happiness and sadness, it’s one moment complementing the other… What I try to remember is to emphasize the importance of every moment and every happening, and not just the ones we perceive as good, because it’s all a whole, and all is worth it! It’s worth living every circumstance, every moment that Life shapes itself as. Have a lovely day!


  2. You actually make it appear really easy with your presentation but I to find this topic to be actually something that I believe I’d by no means understand. It sort of feels too complex and extremely vast for me. I’m having a look ahead in your next submit, I’ll try to get the grasp of it!
