Usually we are led around by the nose or blown here and there like a dry leaf in the wind by ignorance and delusion. Be aware. Guide your life in a positive way, rather than reacting emotionally to this or that. Be aware. Learn to cultivate an inner calm, an inner presence. This inner presence is wise, not being hoodwinked by appearances, emotions, or ego. It is loving. It recognizes we are all the same in wanting happiness and avoiding pain. This love is unconditional, without strings attached. This is the crossroads where wisdom and love meet, where the rubber hits the road. Happy Saga Dawa.
