The 'Ifs' of Life
    #1465443 - 04/16/03 11:26 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

"To become fire, you must first move beyond all the 'ifs' in life. True wisdom is to know who you are, to know you are light. Those who know and have removed all the 'ifs' shine brightly like the stars of the night sky. Having removed all the 'ifs' they find time to study, to practice, to play with their children, to help the poor...time to pray, to go deep -deep inside themselves- and to touch that luminous leaf shimmering at the center of their hearts. Not 'if' they had time, they have time. Not 'if' they could be kind; because they want passionately to be kind, they indeed become kind. Truly this age is unsurpassed in distress, and daily the darkness grows because in so many of our lives there are too many 'ifs'."

Is this related to the "Round To-it"?

I often hear people say they're gonna do _________, when they get a "Round To-it"...

Yes, I agree. Although it would be truly hard to find someone who could forget and give up all the "what if's" in their life. I'm only 5 or 10 "what if's" away from being a millionaire for Pete's sake! That's hard to ignore, but I do my best to do so.

Every descision we make is half chance.

Phase 1... collect underpants... phase 2...??? ... Phase 3 - PROFIT!
