A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at.

A Challenging Golf Game

Moses pulled up to the tee and drove a long one. The ball landed in the fairway, but kept rolling directly toward a water hazard. Moses quickly raised his club, the water parted and the ball rolled to the other side, safe and sound.

Next, Jesus strolled up to the tee and hit a nice long drive directly toward the same water hazard. It landed right in the center of the pond and kind of hovered over the water. Jesus casually walked out on the pond and chipped the ball back onto the green.

The third guy got up and sort of randomly whacked the ball. It headed out over the fence and into oncoming traffic on a nearby street. It bounced off a truck and veered toward a nearby tree.

From there, the ball bounced onto the roof of a shack close by and rolled down into the gutter, down the drainspout, out onto the fairway and straight toward the aforementioned pond. On the way to the pond, the ball hit a little stone and bounced out over the water onto a lily pad, where it rested quietly.

Suddenly a very large bullfrog jumped up on the lily pad and snatched the ball into his mouth. Just then, an eagle swooped down and grabbed the frog and flew away. As they passed over the green, the frog screamed with fright and dropped the ball, which bounced right into the cup for a hole in one.

Moses turned to Jesus and said, "I hate playing with your Dad."

Be fearless and pure; never waver in your determination or your dedication to the spiritual life. Give freely. Be self-controlled, sincere, truthful, loving, and full of the desire to serve…Learn to be detached and to take joy in renunciation. Do not get angry or harm any living creature, but be compassionate and gentle; show good will to all. Cultivate vigor, patience, will, purity; avoid malice and pride. Then, you will achieve your destiny.

When you live through the ego, you always reduce the present moment to a means to an end. You live for the future, and when you achieve your goals, they don't satisfy you, at least not for long.

When you give more attention to the doing than to the future result that you want to achieve through it, you break the old egoic conditioning.

Your doing then becomes not only a great deal more effective, but infinitely more fulfilling and joyful.

When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it--always.

I've never thought of this but I think it would be Every Day's the Same by Nine Inch Nails. All I do is go to school, go to work and repeat.

10 Secrets to the Fountain of Youth

- Deepak Chopra

1. Get to know your spirit as a real force through meditation and silence

2. Get rid of all the toxins in your life (environment, food, drink,
emotions)

3. Shed the need for approval

4. Use the mirror of relationships for your own evolution

5. Change your inner dialogue from what's in it for me to how can I help

6. Be sensitive to the needs of your body including its sensuality

7. Stay in the moment

8. Don't constantly judge

9. Replace fear motivated behaviour by love motivated behaviour

10. Whenever confronted with a situation (a conflict) look for inner
solutions, not outer solutions

 Smiley


1. Laugh as much as you breath & love as much as you live.

2. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.

3. Tomorrow's life is too late. Live today.

4. Life is like a coin. You can spend it any way you wish, but you only spend it 
    once.

5. When one door of happiness closes, another opens; But often we look so     
    long  at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened 
    for us.
