but one must take it BECAUSE it is right.

are never what a video camera would have recorded.

while the other brings us joy. I choose joy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

keep what is worth keeping, and then,
with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.
- George Eliot

are neither your mind nor your body.
Mind and body are your tools - to use as you choose.
Sometimes your body appears to have a will of its own,

shame, foreboding, worry, and fear
is your Rattlesnake Mind striking off on its own.
