It takes no effort to Love. The state has its own innate Joy. Questions answer themselves if you are Aware enough. Life is safe; flowing with the current of being is the simplest way to live. Resistance never really succeeds. Controlling the flow of life is impossible.

Imagine there's no politics. Just people working together for the greater good. No more wasting precious time name-calling and finger-pointing. And no more ego too. - Imagine what we could get done TOGETHER. Living for today. Working together as One. Maybe we are on our way....

Here is her bio and the short story. Blessings to her family and all who loved her. She was another shining light and warrior to help end the suffering and damage caused by these dangerous drugs.

In the past 10 years, I've realized that our culture is rife with ideas that actually inhibit joy. Here are some of the things I'm most grateful to have unlearned:

Marianne Williamson turns to the issue of trust: how can we trust ourselves, when we've failed time and time again? How can we trust love, when it abandons us?
