Choosing to be happy, choosing to love another regardless of their actions is a totally powerful place to be. In fact, in choosing this, a person can see more clearly, rather than somehow loose all reason and faculty. There is a myth that in choosing bliss, we get stupid. It's the opposite.

-Carolyn Sikes

We must resist the popular tendency to think of transcendence as an upward and outward escape from the realities of self and world. Instead, transcendence is a breaking-in, a breathing of the Spirit of love into the heart of our existence, a literal in-spiration that allows us to regard ourselves and our world with more trust and hope than ever before.

-Parker J. Palmer

Love the Carolyn Sikes quote, but I've never seen (the normally precise) Palmer be so vague and cryptic-speak!

"The inner love of the outer spiritual inward being will break outward into the energy of inward love and outwardness." Gack!

Can hours of playing with mobius strips can leave a man silly?
