One Day. One Moment. One Person.
The days are too fast and life is too short. So everyday, be sure to have one profound moment…and one meaningful connection with another human being.
The Universe will only take a step toward you, if you first take a step toward the Universe.

I met Rajani and her pregnant dog Leica outside of 9th Street Espresso in NYC. Leica is just days away from giving birth to 6 puppies.
Rajani said something so very powerful while we waited in line for our morning coffee…
“Everytime I really want something, I never get it. If you try too hard and push too much, the Universe shies away.”
I don’t know about you…but there are a few things I want so so so badly… that seem like they will always elude me. And that causes suffering. A lot of suffering.
Dan Millman writes in The Way of the Peaceful Warrior, “If you don’t get what you want, you suffer; if you get what you don’t want, you suffer; even when you get exactly what you want, you still suffer because you can’t hold on to it forever.”
