read this today and had to share.....
and, yes! i just added this book to the little widget thing
on the side. i'm not very far, but i am so loving it!
'It is easy to become discouraged by life's challenges,
to ask, "Why is it so difficult to be human, why do I
have to go through this, why am I not more enlightened?"
In our despair we fail to appreciate the path quality
of human evolution. Enlightenment is not some ideal goal,
perfect state of mind, or spiritual realm on high, but
a journey that takes place on this earth. It is the process of
waking up to all of what we are and making a complete
relationship with that.'
-john welwood, toward a psychology of awakening
