There was a time when man took no more than he needed.

That time is gone…

There was a time when he always gave something back.

That time is gone…

There was a time when he worshiped the creator and honored creation…

That time too is gone…

And now the waters are polluted, our natural resources all but gone, and creation is dying.

It is time…

To find our way back to the Earth.

What we “want most”,  “always wanted”, or “longed for” is what we are least prepared to have.  That makes us both strive for it and reject it.

Love is an individual experience, defined and maintained by the individual.  It does not have “no value unless shared” when one loves ones own self one enjoys the experience.  We just like to be with or relate to certain people or things while we experience it.

Happiness is defined by the individual and the circumstances.  Some like excitement and some like quiet security and both are measured by the individual’s personal preferences.

In life a quarter is worth 25 cents whether it is heads up or tails up.  It is also true that in life a lesson is worth the effort it takes to learn it. The value of the lesson remains the same whether it is viewed as negative or positive.

The value is constant.

ON NIRVANA

There is no Nirvana.

One has to accept that there absolutely is no Nirvana.

Once one accepts that there is absolutely no Nirvana.

One is in Nirvana.

FREEDOM

The only true freedom is to belong to absolutely nothing.

Few people really want that.

Alluded to in Jonathan Livingston Seagull by R. Bach

GOODNESS

Acceptance is the key to life.

It comes before everything that turns good.

Who we are and what we spend our life achieving is determined by what has gone “wrong” or driven us from the “mean”.  All of us are specialized by this diversion.  The degree of variance equals the level of trauma and the direction of the variance is specific, directly toward or directly away from the nature of the trauma.  It is the acceptance of our traumatic experiences and their influence that lead us to a sense of well being.
