Someone Else's Happiness
Sometimes we feel a need to be proven right as we look at someone else’s life choices; it is not that
they are necessarily doing anything wrong or hurtful, but they may be
living in a different way than we have decided they should be living. Or
perhaps our advice turns out to be unappreciated or incorrect, as mine
was, and we come face to face with the fact that someone’s happiness
does not revolve around us and our fabulous prescience and good sense;
instead, it is based on their own good sense, or even on sheer good
luck. Can we let go of our need to try to dominate people’s lives and
our determination of what the correct outcome of their decisions should

Inhabit This Moment
To be present is to inhabit this moment fully, open to all experience, true to what
is, beyond pleasant and unpleasant, it is not a means to be safe and
comfortable, that happens naturally, without effort.
