Think and Do
Katie at http://kaiteoreilly.wordpress.com/2012/08/22/anais-nin-on-life/ had this on her blog today. Sometimes something will grab me outright and I marvel at how crystal clear and penetrating the idea or thought or concept or whatever is. It immediately strikes home in my heart. It almost like I can physically feel it.
Then there are other times. This is when I will read something and it penetrates the outer layer of my consciousness. Then it will lie there. Like an invitation to think about. I read, then re-read the words. I will pause after each word and think about each one’s possible meaning. Then I will revisit them as a whole thought.
This quote falls into the latter category. I invite you to spend some time thinking about all the possible aspects. Let it penetrate into you.
*Let me add something to this post which I just found about. The poster is from Lisa Congdon. She has several which represent the writing of Anais Nin. They can be purchased at http://www.20×200.com/artist/150-lisa-congdon and http://www.etsy.com/shop/lisacongdon.
