A Process

Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death. ~Anais Nin

The quote you share with us is profound. This life is about each step, eh!
Your image is simple and warming. Thanks for sharing.

yep, reluctance to change is death of the progress - not that the latter is always a good thing.

Beautiful photo. How little we understand change is the only permanence there is.

Change - mind reads very well when and where to change, yets amends when situation demands...

sometimes going back is a change...sometimes moving forward leaving the past...one should be ready for both...for the good of one self, sometimes for others'...

But, in all one should not lose one's character -- that is death there itself!

my thoughts go that way, GZ

Nice picture,

wishes,

I love the quote! Another hard thing is feeling like you're changing all the time. Makes me feel like a lunatic sometimes! LOL

Deep quote with a fine image. A post that inspires us with reflection.

Cergie said...

Yes, I aggree.
I understood that nothing can remain the same for ever. The only think which will be for ever is death. If you are alive you can have hope that something else will happen. Maybe not the same, surely not the same, but something quite fine too. It is neccessary to go forwards.

Right now I seem to be residing in a state of inertia.
That will soon change, thank goodness!
