Casual discussion amongst spiritual friends.
Sign seen in a household kitchen:
"Well, you know, so far today, I done pretty good:
I haven't killed anything or harmed anyone...
I've not taken anything not belonging to me...
I've been pretty virtuous in the sex department, if I say so myself...
I haven't lied, gossiped, slandered or said anything mean, unkind, uncivil or even thoughtless to anyone, about anyone...
I've kept off the woozy stuff and kept a cool level head.....
but I'll be getting out of bed in a minute, so it might just get that little bit harder...."
"Samsara: The human condition's heartbreaking inability to sustain contentment."
Elizabeth Gilbert, 'Eat, Pray, Love'. Simplify: 17 into 1 WILL go: Mindfulness!Quieta movere magna merces videbatur.

Translation: Just to stir things up seemed a good reward in itself. I am sooooo happy - How on earth could I be otherwise?! http://www.armchairadvice.co.uk/relationships/forum/
