So I have been thinking about practical ways to practice meaning in our everyday lives. One of my sources of inspiration this month came from one of the women who was at our anniversary celebration. She suggested we have a wall in our kitchen/gathering area where people could write inspirational words or phrases. This got me thinking what if we all did this. What if we create a wall or a mural of proverbs? They could come from one faith tradition, or in our space, a myriad of faith traditions. They could come from the Book of Proverbs in the Hebrew Bible or one of numerous other collections of proverbs. Here is a list of three of my favorite collections of proverbs:
- Like a Yeti Catching Marmots: A Little Treasury of Tibetan Proverbs·
- Soul Would Have No Rainbow if the Eyes Had No Tears and Other Native American Proverbs·
- African Proverbs, Parables and Wise Sayings
Do you have one you would like to share?
