is where we meet our ancestors
and our descendants yet unborn.

Life is NOT "Supposed to be Fair."
Know that there is no single way that life is "supposed" to be.
Demanding that life meet our expectations
is a sure fire recipe for a miserable existence.

Life just happens to us regardless of our best intentions.
Our only path to happiness lies in being open
to receiving whatever life throws at us -
with Gratitude. Have NO Expectations of life.

From wonder into wonder existence opens.
- Lao Tzu

Change is the essential process of all existence.
- Spock character in Star Trek

When you cry and weep,
when you are miserable,

do we meet the ultimate, the eternal.
Only in celebration
do we go beyond the circle of birth and death.
- Osho

 

Pay It Forward.
Gift future generations in proportion to your gratitude.
The nature of life is that we pay forward
our biological creation and nurture.
Our parents gift us with life and nurture,
and we gift our children with life and nurture.

choose to take "pay it forward" farther - much farther.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The whole secret of existence is to have no fear.

If you have found your truth within yourself
there is nothing more in this whole existence to find.

Energy, mass, gravity and the rest of existence
are all so improbable.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Existence needs you.
Without you, something will be missing
in existence and nobody can replace it.
Thats what gives you dignity,

is to become so absolutely free
that your very existence is an act of rebellion.

When you open up to the ultimate,
immediately it pours into you.
You are no longer an ordinary human being -
you have transcended.
Your insight has become the
insight of the whole existence.
Now you are no longer separate -
you have found your roots.
- Osho

The heart is always right -
if there's a question of choosing between the mind and the heart -
because mind is a creation of the society.
It has been educated.
You have been given it by the society, not by existence.
The heart is unpolluted.
- Osho

The things that have acquired unity are these:

Security is mostly a superstition.
