Zen – Life is a Game.

In all things I feel blessed. Have come to appreciate that any bad seems to usually work out in some way that is for my good.

A good attitude can work miracles. Stay curious. Challenge authority. The biggest loser is someone that doesn’t try to play the game.

Life is a game. You may not like politics or whatever, but not liking something will not keep it from coming to you. Life happens. Play it well.

Where you stand, depends on where you sit.

Nelson Mandela: “Where you stand, depends on where you sit.”

I feel very blessed in my life. Yet, I also realize that we do not all come from the same background, or have had the same opportunities, or find ourselves in situations where we are more likely to succeed than someone who is not us.

The world isn’t fair. Some folks work hard to keep it that way. We don’t have to accept that … but changing the status quo can be a bitch of a task.

Stay curious. Challenge authority. Do not accept people’s stands as the final word on what is right or wrong.

Zen – Life is …

If we hold ourselves responsible for always trying a little bit harder and to work with best intent then something good usually does come of it.

Life – it is what we make it.

Life, God and Karma

Lead by example.

Live life the way we want others to live.

… If they follow then perhaps we’re on the right track.

If they do not follow then reexamine life and attitudes.

Still sure that this is the right path? Then forgive and move on — let God sort them out.

God (or karma) will judge us all.
