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.

you, your innermost being, is the target -
not a beautiful house, but a beautiful you;
not much money, but a rich you;
not many things, but an open being,
available to millions of things.
- Osho

No matter how strong or clever,
Some one will sneer if you pause to hear,

There are those who will never admit it.

Have the courage to trust that
the beautiful butterflies of your life
will return - or not - as life intends.

Perspective:
Do you always look at life from the same point-of-view?

that should be good for a laugh.
Troubles only appear troubling to those close to them.
