The mind that is learning is an innocent mind, whereas the mind that is merely acquiring knowledge is old, stagnant, corrupted by the past. An innocent mind perceives instantly, it is learning all the time without accumulating, and such a mind alone is mature.
Welcome to 2019 and the year of the earth pig.
Apparently, this will be a year of good fortune and luck. Personally, I am a pig Chinese zodiac native and I’m advised to make a great deal of money by investing. Lucky colours are those representing fire: red, orange and pink.
Well, if that information inspires you to be positive in the coming year, then thanks to the curiously named website Karma Weather.
