There is a tight karmic loop around my life – intense desire translates into immediate DENIAL of that desire.
I am learning to be grateful regardless, and to let things fall as they may… This is, of course, taking extreme zen concentration, but maybe it’s better practice than being in a peaceful and isolated mountain retreat. Real life sure as hell feels much more raw than a plush cabin in the woods.
I first and foremost a HUMANIST. It is extremely important to remember this under all circumstances.
