Open to receiving

I am open to receiving Joy, Love, Peace, Happiness, and Serenity

Love can go anywhere.  Nothing can obstruct it.  When we feel love, our mind is expansive and open enough to include the entirety of life in full awareness, both its pleasures and its pains. We neither feel betrayed by pain or overcome by it.

No external condition can prevent love.  No one and no thing can stop it.  The awakening of love is not bound up in things being a certain way.

– Sharon Salzberg*,  Lovingkindness: The Revolutionary Art of Happiness

I am larger and better than I thought.  I did not think I held so much goodness.

About Casey

“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes ‘Awww!’ ~ Jack Kerouac, On The Road Again
