Gates and Journeys

"Those who seek the truth by means of intellect and learning only get further and further away from it. Not till your thoughts cease all their branching here and there, not till you abandon all thoughts of seeking for something, not till your mind is motionless as wood or stone, will you be on the right road to the Gate." - Huang Po

"The longest journey
begins with a single step."

Beautiful photograph and some of my favourite words from Huang Po. Swap the word "truth" for "happiness" and you have wisdom that applies to all. After all not everyone seeks truth but who is there who does not in some way seek happiness.
