Life is difficult…

Well, life is difficult.

No one could have said it better than M. Scott Peck in The Road Less Traveled: “This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it. Once we truly know that life is difficult — once we truly understand and accept it — then life is no longer difficult. Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters.“

Almost always, I just resign myself to this fact, following Peck’s advice.

And today is such a day… until God slapped me in the face with a ray of His sunshine peering through my window — a wonderful sunrise! The clouds formed in the shape of a bird in flight! A new day. A new beginning. No, life is not at all difficult if you let God carry you on His wings.

About Seeing with Brahmin eyes
My sense of humor can be keen, sarcastic, silly or corny -- sometimes all at once. I enjoy meeting new people with no preconceived ideas about what or what is not possible. You get much more out of life by being open minded and willing. I'm an easy going, good-natured person who loves life and loves people. I'm both optimistic and realistic and pretty objective when it comes to assessing situations, events, etc. In general I am a very positive person and you'll usually find we with a smile on my face.
