anxious

We tend to feel guilty and anxious when we do something right that our thinking tells us is wrong. We feel resentment and anger when we do something wrong for us, that our thoughts tell us is right.

summer's end



love in action

There will always be points along my path that will challenge me with struggles and adversities that seem at first glance too big to take on. Too big to change. Too big to transform. But as I learned ... in the most powerful, sacred time of my life, the difference is in the doing. We do the right thing, because it is the right thing to do, regardless of the outcome. ... We love with all that we have, even in the face of overwhelming hatred and violence because we know that love in action is the hope for our world.

virtue

Define virtue as living in perfect alignment with what you most deeply feel to be true, and happiness as an upwelling of joy that arises directly from this alignment, regardless of external factors.
