    Can you spare any change?

    “Travel light; arrive quickly.” ~ Sathya Sai Baba The only constant is change, nothing lasts forever, and this, too, shall pass.

    Impermanence is the fountain of youth!

    When effort is needed, effort will appear. When effortlessness becomes essential, it will assert itself. You need not push life about.

    Ubuntu* ~ “I am what I am because of who we all are”

    How not to go crazy in a mad world

    “It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.” ~Jiddu Krishnamurthi (1895-1986) It’s pretty hard to observe what’s going on in the world these days without – at the very least – shaking your head in wonder.
