“The trappings of lifestyle are often that;

Somehow we need to educate the young that way. I once read an article that has stayed with me....the gist of it was that "you are what you can do, not what you've got!"

It's singalong time!

Goddess on the mountain top
Burning like a silver flame
The summit of beauty and love
And Venus was her name

She's got it
Yeah, baby, she's got it
I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
At your desire
Well, I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
At your desire

Will be singing that all day now!

Less is definitely more.
Even this fly trap won't reopen until it has digested what it caught..!

I['m thinking credit card balances (imbalances?) as I read this quote today.

True quote, takes so much to maintain a lifestyle in some cases to the detrement of enjoying life itself.

Tenderness contains an element of sadness. It is not the sadness of feeling sorry for yourself or feeling deprived, but it is a natural situation of fullness. You feel so full and rich, as if you were about to shed tears. Your eyes are full of tears, and the moment you blink, the tears will spill out of your eyes and roll down your cheeks. In order to be a good warrior, one has to feel this sad and tender heart. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
