There is a secret wisdom-of-the-ages
that holds the key to breaking our
cycle of self-imposed suffering.

God has not failed, died, or gone on vacation.
The world is working perfectly. We just misunderstood.

life was "supposed" to be "fair,"
and all the trouble started -
expectation, disappointment, resentment, anger -
a whole cycle of suffering that began
with the belief that life is "supposed" to be "fair."
