No one saves us

No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path. – Buddha

DSC_1053I appreciate that this is an odd pairing – a photo of a hummingbird and a quote about saving oneself – but it is the reflective stance of the hummingbird that I feel makes it fit. Hummingbirds, like so many people, are so busy and work so hard – but here, this hummingbird paused and that’s what this quote is encouraging us to do – take a moment and reflect and think about how our happiness and our path is one we must find for ourselves.

(As well, I needed a photo that was reminiscent of summer as I am reaching my winter breaking point!)
