Giving of ourselves is what makes us feel alive

March 23, 2008

Giving to other people is what makes me feel alive.  Not my car or my house.  Not what I look like in the mirror.  When I give my time, when I make someone smile after they were feeling sad, it’s as close to healthy as I ever feel.

Status will get you nowhere

March 9, 2008

If you’re trying to show off for people at the top, forget it.  They will look down at you anyway.

If you’re trying to show off for people at the bottom, forget it.  They will only envy you.

Status will get you nowhere.

Only an open heart will allow you to float equally between everyone.
