Perfection in the Process

The Gaia hypothesis states that the earth is a self-regulating physiological system. Simply put, “The Earth is alive creating and re-creating itself”. Stephen Jay Gould writes “There is no progress in evolution – we are not marching towards some greater thing”.

Sometimes the universe gives you what you need. Today the universe gave me a bit of optimism. I just watched Jill Bolte Taylor (TED Talk) titled: My Stoke of Insight (I highly recommend). Then followed that up with a new book about optimism titled: What Are You Optimistic About? by John Brockman.

“Perfection in the process” is my mantra of choice; no ending point is needed for the trip to have value.
