Whether he had mistaken me for someone who’s young and cool... OR ... whether he actually thought I was young and cool... (OR... I don’t want to think that he’d say that for every person irrespective of youth and coolness ... including Yoda), I was thrilled.
I had the same rush of gratitude at the gym earlier this week when, following a furious workout with Shakura S’Aida and Treasa Levasseur rockin’ out in my earbuds, I sat absorbing the therapy of the whirlpool. Just so much gratitude... swirling about... filling my every pore...
All of which brings me to His Holiness The Dalai Lama XIV who said, “Cultivating a close, warmhearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease. It is the ultimate source of success in life.”
