Lao Tzu: A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.

A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.
- Lao Tzu
A great paradox of life is that while we must create plans for our future in order to live a joyful life, simultaneously, we must graciously accept whatever events life actually throws against us.

If we fail to plan, we merely bob helplessly - like a cork on the sea of life.
If we resist whatever life delivers to us, we create untold misery for ourselves.

Only by charting our course, and then continuously recharting that course in response to the events of life, can we achieve success and happiness.

  1. i agree with this quote, it is very true. another quote i believe in, which is similar to this is "we are not determined by what happens to us but by how we respond". this being said one should be ready for responding, for changing plans -- for better or worse. this is truly living!

  4. Man plans....God laughs. A healed mind doesn't plan so says the Course. If we can show up, be grateful and flexible while allowing the Universe to lead our way, there is no need for plans. Whatever I do, has to feel right and feel good to me. If not, I change my course and seek what feels best.
