The moment you become miserly you are closed
to the basic phenomenon of life: expansion, sharing.
The moment you start clinging to things,
you have missed the target.

not much money, but a rich you;
not many things, but an open being,
available to millions of things.

Loneliness is not what it seems.
One does not feel lonely because one is alone,
but because of a feeling of lack -

one's sense of inherent worth.

In many ways, it is easier to be a good giver than a good receiver.
The giver chooses the gift and the timing.
More important, societal and religious traditions
tend to elevate the status of giver and lower the status of receiver.
When the Bible (Acts 20:32-35) speaks of it being
more blessed to give than to receive,
I believe that a better translation might be
"take" rather than "receive," as the context
of that passage is "coveting."
Certainly there is nothing blessed about coveting,
stealing, begging, or demanding,
however the skill of graciously receiving a freely offered gift
is another matter entirely.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Civilization had too many rules for me,
so I did my best to rewrite them.

that is the reason the Lord makes so many of them.

if you call the tail a leg? Four.
Calling a tail a leg doesn't make it a leg.

Misery nourishes your ego -
that's why you see so many miserable people in the world.
The basic, central point is the ego.
- Osho

Just because it's true, I say as often as I can
in as many ways as I can form, "I sure love you."

and I rather like the role.

six impossible things before breakfast.
