where there is sadness, joy.

to the basic phenomenon of life: expansion, sharing.

not a beautiful house, but a beautiful you;
not much money, but a rich you;
not many things, but an open being,
available to millions of things.
- Osho

can cause us to neglect those friends.
Today is the day to invest in those people
we hope will call us "old friend" in the years to come.

Spurring ourselves on to become better human beings,
we develop true regard for ourselves,
and our life will become sacred.
