Beyond mind, there is an awareness that is intrinsic,
that is not given to you by the outside, and is not an idea -

which makes you more joyous, fulfills you,
gives you contentment, makes your life a work of art, a beauty.
But this is possible only if the master in you is awake.

to choose one's own way.

This is no child's game. This is the big one -

Penalty for what, we ask?
The Judge is silent.
How can I win the Game?
"You can never win," comes the answer,
"So just take pleasure in playing the Game."
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Compassion and generosity must be the heart of any true religion.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
