(Sorta) Daily Writing Prompt April 22
I’d like to propose a daily writing prompt challenge. The original post is here . The prompts come from a book titled More Daily Wisdom: 365 Buddhist Inspirations . It consists of daily quotes from various Buddhist writings intended to inspire, to get the reader to think or feel. I wish to express this reaction in writing and hope to motivate others to do so also.
If you’d like to participate, please tag your posts 365DailyPrompt
The prompt for today, April 22, is:
The basic paradox: everything is mess yet all is well.
This really isn’t a paradox, but a simple contradiction. Both these things can’t be true in the same place at the same time. It’s more a matter of degree, or at least perspective. Everything might be a mess at 2work, at least in the machine shop. All might be well in the reception area. Then, everything is well at home.
Or, the phrase might be a suggestion not to take setbacks too seriously or trust too seriously in the good. Or it might the authors’ dismissal of strangers’ concerns short of natural disaster.
