Over the years, as I have faced probing questions about how I survive spiritually in such seemingly challenging circumstances, I have contemplated my daily existence, which I do not consider to be a spiritual wasteland at all.

Some time ago,I picked up the original scroll version of Jack Kerouac’s “On the Road, “the legendary first draft – rougher, wilder, and racier than the 1957 edition,” as the front cover states. I’d like to say that I bought this particular edition because ...

A Bridge to Compassion

Mar 12, 2014

Category:

Honestly, I quite often come to conclusions about the actions or motives of others with absolutely no understanding of their situation. But I don't want to live this way. I need a pathway, a bridge to help me get from critical to compassionate. Maybe you need one too.
