Last night, I was slumped in front of a T.V. show—an old episode of Law & Order that really had me hooked. My daughter walked in to talk with me, and I wasn’t listening very well because I was distracted by the T.V. Moreover, I was also in a mood--a low one.

It’s all divinely planned and given—not always in the pretty package.
Byron Katie says, “Life doesn’t happen to us; life happens for us.”

This morning I woke up to the most vibrant sunrise. Pinks and oranges amidst lavender filled the early morning sky—and I thought to myself: That’s what living vibrantly looks and feels like: A breathtaking sunrise bursting in beauty to light up the morning—to light up LIFE.

If you could adopt this one idea, "it's all perfectly imperfect as it is,” you will free yourself from so much pain and suffering.

Letting go isn’t easy, but life gets easier as I let go.
Holding on too tightly to anything causes pain and suffering.
