Dark and Light

Everything of the light has the potential of darkness. Everything from the dark has the potential for light. Light is all there is. Darkness exists only when the light is blocked. The nighttime experienced by half of the earth is created by the earth itself, casting a shadow. Is a black pebble dark or light?… Continue reading Dark and Light

The Hermits

Picture the scene. A wide valley sits within and is completely surrounded by tall mountains. During spring, when the air is often clean and clear, and when the sunny days outnumber the rest, the valley is lush and green. Those who live in this valley love that time of year.

What to Do about Envy

Envy is uncomfortable. It is bad enough envying a complete stranger, who appears to have the very thing you desire; it is much worse when you find yourself envious of a loved one, who just experienced a win-fall.

Happiness is…

Happiness is a thinking game. You feel happiness as an emotion, but you get to happiness through your thoughts. Wealth, to the outside world, is an adjective. It is objective.
