Under the right circumstances a smile can illuminate this entire universe and even the entirety of this reality.
Don’t hesitate to share one.
Meditation brings silence. Silence provides space for new ideas to appear. It makes sense to record them. Keep a voice recorder near by and capture them and get back to your practice.
It is at your discretion as to whether or not it is your mind providing that great idea or not!
Love is the infinite blossoming of pure-reason and the desire to express the creative aspect of consciousness in all of its forms according to the boundaries of this reality. We are that expression in all of its forms and we serve to create an environment where that expression of divine creativity may unfold by kindly and perseveringly serving all of humanity.
The nature of infinity becomes more mysterious as your ponder it.
The way to answer those questions is to give them space for the inherent answers to expand. In other words, space is silence.
The exploration of that answer space reveals everything.
When that which we are is not bound by the laws of space, time, causality, and identity, and is simply manifest through different means, what is that which we love about ourselves and others? What is it that we have and can give that is timeless and consequentless?
An infinite supply of that which will never satisfy you, won’t.

Or in my words, or how I would have named a Van Halen album:
“Too much is never enough.”
“Embarrassing” is an adjective. It classifies things that cause shame to a person. The act of being embarrassed is composed or 3 parts.
In the first part one learns something new about themselves. Generally learning new things about oneself is a pleasant and exciting process. That thing that was just learned was not expected at all by the subject. It is new and surprising information. Generally learning new and surprising things are fun. The third aspect is where the subject decides that the new information is shameful in some way. The first two parts of the process are really neat and fun and the third part is horrible. This is where the opportunity lies.
When you reach the 3rd part stop yourself. Determine whether it is you, or your mind, that has decided that you should be ashamed. It is probably your mind. Only your mind would say that “in fact, 2 outta 3, is bad”. That is negative and crummy. If 67% of the situation is good then stick with that.
Every time you become embarrassed take it as a delightful opportunity to ignore your negative mind and tell it instead to cheer up and enjoy this opportunity for self-transformation that just appeared in front of you.
Work hard at what you love and never take it for granted.
Every moment is a gift and an opportunity. Work is required and the only thing guaranteed in the process. Whatever comes of your effort is up to something more mysterious.
Real heartfelt laughter seems to be a child of that place from where sorrowless joy comes. It is connected to the infinite divine, but only for a moment. What happens before and after that moment is quite a mystery!
