That's what learning is, after all;

Losing, in a curious way, is winning.

YES you can have what you want.

turn into opportunities to do what you came here to do.
- Neale Donald Walsch

The past is no more and the future is not yet.
The only right person is one who lives moment to moment,

his whole consciousness, his whole being,
is involved in the reality of here and in the reality of now.
- Osho

the sweet, gracious discourses of my book friends.
They talk to me without embarrassment or awkwardness.

I am trying to own my own opinions
and offer what I know as an option,
just as I would present a tray of appetizers for my guests.
Here are several choices that I have created -
if one looks good you are welcome to take it.
In other words, I am training myself to say,
"May I tell you how it is for me?"
When I ask the question, it means waiting
for the invitation to share.
It also means being prepared for my friend to say,
"No." They don't want to know.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

A fool is one who goes on trusting;
a fool is one who goes on trusting against all his experience.
You deceive him, and he trusts you;
and you deceive him again, and he trusts you;
and you deceive him again, and he trusts you.
Then you will say that he is a fool, he does not learn.
His trust is tremendous; his trust is
so pure that nobody can corrupt it.
Be a fool in the Taoist sense, in the Zen sense.
Don't try to create a wall of knowledge around you.
Whatsoever experience comes to you,
let it happen, and then go on dropping it.
Go on cleaning your mind continuously;
go on dying to the past so you remain in the present here-now,
as if just born, just a babe.
- Osho

Gain happiness by living in the present -
without regret for the past or fear of the future.

what you are willing to die having left undone.
