What would happen to our relationships with our spouses, children, friends and bosses if we treated them with the same lack of care we treat ourselves?
Happiness, patience, peace of mind, self-love and the other states of being that we say we want to experience, are skills … skills that must be developed over time.
What if Buddha had been a mom? What if Jesus had been a father? Would spiritual mastery look more like you and me?
Whom do you trust? Whose hand do you squeeze when you are scared? Are you ever even allowed to be scared?
Without a daily practice we forget our true nature, just like I forgot the voice of my mom…
On my journey, I’ve found only one rule, truly, only one worth obeying. And that is follow your JOY.
