“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, or worn. It is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.” ~Denis Waitley
All men and women are born, live, suffer and die;
what distinguishes us one from another is our dreams,
whether they be dreams about worldly or unworldly things,
and what we do to make them come about.
We do not choose to be born.
We do not choose our parents.
We do not choose our historical epoch,
the country of our birth,
or the immediate circumstances of our upbringing.
We do not, most of us, choose to die;
nor do we choose the time and conditions of our death.
But within this realm of choicelessness, we do choose how we live.
"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away." ~Anon
"There are all kinds of futures. There is a hoped-for future, there is a feared future, there is a predictable future, and there is an unimagined future." ~Werner Erhard
