Nice!

Things have been nice over the past couple weeks. I've been feeling good after a day's work so the weekdays are peaceful and weekends are usually happy too (with or without injesting stimulants). I'm enjoying life now and will take each day as it comes.

So yesterday I was sitting at the Barista near Sterling with a couple of friends and they were telling me how difficult it is to meet new women and stuff. How they so badly wanted to date someone and how the 'right' oppotunity never presented itself. As consultant philosopher to my friends, I added my two bits and told them something I had heard another friend say a few days earlier that really hit home. She said 'When you stop craving, the universe conspires to give you what you want.'

I thought about that line for a long time after hearing it. And it made sense. It's weird but I've seen it to be true. I can't figure out the logic behind it, but it works and when it does, it's the most beautiful, happy feeling ever!

A timely post for me. :-) The problem is, how does one give up and let go of that craving? Sometimes I wonder if the craving is nothing more than just a habit or habitual thought/feeling pattern. Hmm...!

Anyway, glad you're doing well!

RM... so good to hear from you again! unfortunately, i don't have an answer to that question. maybe asking if that is what will really make me happy? not sure.

haathi... yipes! 'right' insights? :) it's not me, it's the samsi genes!!! but for what it's worth, you're welcome :D btw, i still watch that father-son video every other day :) amma asked who sent it to me and i told her you did and she went 'that girl has something about her han'. thought i'd let you know :D

for somebody who has had it come true, i damn well believe in it.

muse : the more consciously you try to let go, more your chances of you failing. just ignore the craving, and let it be. you dont have to let go of the craving, one just needs to aim at reaching a mental state where you refuse to let it bother you. and that, is just a question of mind over matter:)
