From the way most people live,
one would never guess that humans are beings of free will.
Repetition can be a choice, but often it isn't.
The athlete or pianist who practices the same routine
day after day, year after year, has their eye on a goal.
The unending repetition is a conscious choice
in the pursuit of a life dream.
But what about the sameness of most lives?
Observe the morning commute, the after-work drink,
the Sunday football game or religious service -
how many of those people are consciously following their dream,
training their mind, body, and spirit through that daily repetition?
And how many are mindlessly slogging through each day
out of habit and boredom?
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

cellularly, like a laborious mosaic.

the strongest of us struggle in vain.

when in reality it is the opposite.
When we can recognize all our good qualities

we can start to appreciate ourselves
as we would a dear friend

we need to become our own loving teacher and coach.

we develop true regard for ourselves,
and our life will become sacred.

and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined,
he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.

will begin to establish themselves around and within him;
or the old laws be expanded, and interpreted in his favor
in a more liberal sense,
and he will live with the license of a higher order of beings.

with Gratitude. Have NO Expectations of life.

relating to each other, but not tied in any relationship.

but never even in their dreams thinking of dominating,
thinking of enslaving the other person.
