Forget About That Corny Corner-Ribbon's Drivel! The Real Secret is HERE Indeed - not over there!

realistic quote of the day... or next few days... weeks... months

I recently stumbled upon this intriguing (as lengthy - bear with it) quote by Gerald May, author of The Dark Night of the Soul:

"In our society, we have come to believe that discomfort always means something is wrong. We are conditioned to believe that feelings of distress, pain, deprivation, yearning, and longing mean something is wrong with the way we are living our lives.

"Conversely, we are convinced that a rightly lived life must give us serenity, completion, and fulfillment. Comfort means "right" and distress means "wrong." The influence of such convictions is stifling to the human spirit. Individually and collectively, we must somehow recover the truth. The truth is, we were never meant to be completely satisfied."

NOT ON THIS PLANE OF EXISTENCE - NOPE...
