(Sorta) Daily Writing Prompt

I’d like to propose a daily writing prompt challenge. The original post is here . The prompts come from a book titled More Daily Wisdom: 365 Buddhist Inspirations . It consists of daily quotes from various Buddhist writings intended to inspire, to get the reader to think or feel. I wish to express this reaction in writing and hope to motivate others to do so also.

If you’d like to participate, please tag your posts

The prompt for today, April 24, is:

The means are the ends and the ends are the means. Nothings matters; everything matters.

Ah, sigh. I suppose it’s intended to reflect that ethics are important in how one goes about achieving one’s ends. The second sentence is a simple contradiction. It would all be a matter of be perspective. Nothing matters from certain views; everything matters from others.

Well, it certainly gives me pause for thought. Not sure if I can come up with anything on it but we will see what a bit of reflection will do. If that doesn't work, I could always try free writing. It's surprising what can come up with that!
