The key to fulfilling our dreams and being happy is to possess hope tempered with reality. If we can manifest these seemingly distant objectives we can grow in ways we do not fully understand.
It is difficult to maintain this life state. What helps me and many others is a solid practice where we work to understand the seemingly complex workings of mind and body into a practice – A practice of courage, wisdom and compassion that surface from deep within our life in the most natural, organic ways. Each moment of growth building off the lessons of the former moments.
I am forever indebted to this practice, to the teachings of Buddhism and to the words and examples of the mentors before me, as well as to my family and friends and all the people I have encountered on my journey.
Many small moments taken with compassion, curiosity and understanding often equal the biggest step forward we can take.
Peace and Love, Jim
