Mini-Meditations for May

See the glass already broken: Every rock is formed and every rock will vanish. It is only a matter of when.  Use perspective. And instead of thinking, "Oh my God!," find yourself thinking, "Ah, there it goes..."

Search for the grain of truth in other's opinions: When you judge someone else's opinion, it doesn't say anything about the other person, but it does say something about your need to be judgmental.

Seek first to understand: Become more interested in understanding the other person, rather than being understood.

5/9/12:: Here is the upside: a lesson in being alone

Read this as slowly and as carefully as I wrote it:

Take each step lightly, with balance, in the moment, guided solely by internal values and passions, WITH HONESTY-- rather than trying to formulate plans and strive for certain outcomes. Don't seek perspective. Listen. And above ALL ELSE, be kind.
