Be warned:in this very rich environment where you can immerse yourself so completely, your emotions will become engaged -- and not everyone is cognizant of that. Among the many excellent features of SL, there is no auto-return on hearts, so be wary of where your's wanders...

Quote of the day:

"Happiness means feeling you are on the right path every moment. You don’t need to arrive at the end of the path in order to be happy.

~ Thich Nhat Hanh, “The Heart of the Matter


How many times have you heard someone [or yourself] saying “ I would be happy if _________. ”  I would be happy if I made more money or could pay my bills or could buy a new car or could afford a new house.  I would be happy if I felt better, if I could get rid of this cold.  I would be happy if I found romance or love or sex or someone who cared for me.  I would be happy if I could travel.  I would be happy if I could go on vacation or if it was the weekend.  I would be happy if I could see my family more often or if my family accepted me or if I had family nearby.  I would be happy if I had a different job or if I could retire. 


So many “ifs”!   Is this not part of wishing our lives away, as we concentrate on what is desired/needed/wanted instead of what is present? 




Time to concentrate on the journey rather than the destination
