"So just take pleasure in playing the Game."

Only in celebration

- Osho

inventiveness, and service that they contribute.
In this world-view, money that is spent
or given away returns multiplied.

to choose one's own way.

I have gratitude for EVERYTHING
that has ever occurred to bring me to this moment.
