Nature Does Not Hurry
”Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished." The systems of nature can be an amazing reminder of what it really means to slow down. In our fast-paced lives, we are constantly on the move and can often remain unaware of the world around us. These words by ancient philosopher Lao Zi instill a sense of peace to our ever-looming to-do lists. Nature follows a pattern and a cycle of seasons and has an amazing sense of rhythm that we could do well to imitate. Display this inspirational print as a reminder to stay watchful, anticipate changes without fear and to breathe deep.

Drop In The Ocean
”You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.” What is it about Nature that can make us feel so small? While it’s easy to pass through a mountain trail or stand at the edge of an ocean and feel impossibly tiny and unheard, these words by the poet Rumi remind us that all things are significant and connected in the pattern of nature. With a world so vast, it’s often easier to assume that our choices don’t matter and our decisions don’t affect anyone other than ourselves. Display this print as both a reminder and a call to action: you are the entire ocean in a drop.

Written in nautical flag type, hang this poster to show your appreciation for hard work that brings positive results.
