Making Do

Making do with what you have is a virtue.  It allows you to be in the now, to not be stopped by lack or lack thinking, to keep moving forward and to be living rather than regretting.  Great!  But what if you have plenty? …

Identify

Sometimes I look at people and they seem to be going backwards up the slide.  Instead of climbing to the top and then letting gravity do the work while they enjoy the rush, they are struggling and struggling to get somewhere they can’t see and complaining all the while that it shouldn’t be this hard to get where they want to be! …

Open to Desire

“Many sincere people drawn to Eastern spirituality are in danger of throwing the baby out with the bathwater. In identifying the cause of suffering as desire, they struggle to eliminate it from their being.

The Message of the Message
