My latest book, #6, entitled My Soul Quest contains Wisdom, Science, Humor, Cartoons, and portraits I’ve done. It began right here on this site and was converted into a book. This book is taken from the collection on this site, shorter, rethought and edited. It powerfully says who I am and what I stand for at this time in my life.
I drew this portrait of my friend Sudie, then modified it and then made a copy by playing with it on my computer. Here are 3 versions…
My enlightened friend Christina wrote on her site http://www.untroubledmind.com, a very realistic look at people who are disappointed with life. The average person is so sucked into what everyone else thinks that they are afraid to do the wrong thing. Insanity and normality are becoming synonyms. We keep looking outside ourselves for joy.
Everything we like or dislike are choices that exist only within our own minds. I have always found happiness and yet I can tell you a few horror stories as can anyone.
That is life. We choose to be happy or ungrateful. It really is that simple.
A grateful person doesn’t need circumstances or possessions to find joy. “I am” is my joy, not just “I have.” “I love” brings me fulfillment in place of need. The older I get, the easier the path has become. The answer has been…
Letting go and living in kindness and appreciation.
As this ideology has evolved, so has peace and joy…and miracles to accompany my simple life. So happy to have friends to share with!
Actually, some innocent strangers get exposed to my enthusiasm too.
