a friend of mine e-mailed me today.........a little sad and sort of lethargic on this rainy friday, which is understandable, and she talked about getting on with practical business of education and self-improvement but she said that she felt as if that was being selfish, working on the self.
my answer to that is that there isn`t anything else but self. if you diminish or damage the self the whole of everything else goes with it. just remember the last time you were ill or experienced a setback. the whole world caught a cold along with you.........
self is all there is. look after it. nurture it. develop it. revel in it. spoil it. build it up and hold it upon high, for it is god.
the buddhists ask; who is the god who makes the grass green?
it is us. who else could it be?
