Raise the Sail to Cross the Blue Sea and Blue Sky

Poetic Mindfulness

The wine in the golden cup was of extraordinary value, and the dishes in the jade plate were precious.

However, my feelings of sadness made me put down the silverware, and I was not in the mood to eat.

I pulled out my Longquan sword and looked around, feeling at a loss.

I would like to cross the Yellow River, the river was frozen and it was arduous to cross;

I would like to climb Taihang Mountain, and there was heavy snow all over the mountains.

Back in those days, when Jiang Taigong was fishing by the river, he accidentally ran into King Wen who valued talents.

Yi Yin once dreamed of passing by Sun and Moon on a boat, and was promoted by Shang Tang to help Shang eliminate Xia.

How exhilarating is the journey of life, how mind-blowing is it, there is a fork in the road, which one is the royal road?

I firmly believe that the time to sail before the wind will come, and at that time, I will raise the sail to cross the blue sea and blue sky.
