as well from as having the perspective of imagination -
the realm of the what-might-be
inhabited by futurists and science-fiction writers.

or too menial when offered
to Thee in loving service.

and each of us has the ability to make
a profound difference in the lives we touch.

on those around us by the nature of our lives
and the example we set -

or how important we believe we are.

regardless of external circumstances,
is a great legacy for our family and for the world.

without taking time for self-renewal and play,
abandons the joy and the true value of life.

or too menial when offered to Thee in loving service.
- Paramahansa Yogananda

I want to share with you the three rules
that I have in order to accept an apprentice.
Rule Number 1: Don't believe me.
I don't want you to believe me
but I want you to listen and make choices - your choices.
If what I say, doesn't work for you, leave it.
But if it works for you and that's what you want, then make it yours.
Rule Number 2: Don't believe yourself.
Why? Because most of your belief system is a lie - it's not true.
And by believing yourself, you create all the limitations
that don't allow you to be what you really are.
Don't believe yourself. Listen to what you say,
listen to what you think, listen to what you believe.
And when you listen, open your ears, open your mind,
open your intelligence and make choices.
Rule 3 is, don't believe anybody else.
Don't believe them at all.
Open your ears and your mind; listen and make choices.
- don Miguel Ruiz

Second marriage is the triumph of hope over experience.

rather than in the knowing.

in order to live joyfully.
