is a sure fire recipe for a miserable existence.

with Gratitude. Have NO Expectations of life.

choose to take "pay it forward" farther - much farther.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

- Osho

When you open up to the ultimate,

What is a miracle? To some, it is an act of God.
To others, something amazing, extraordinary, or unexpected.

Energy, mass, gravity and the rest of existence
are all so improbable.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

When you cry and weep,
when you are miserable,

When you celebrate,

Only in celebration
do we go beyond the circle of birth and death.
- Osho
