These are profound lessons ~ especially the thread of impermanence and the preciousness of this present moment that runs throughout. What you have learned and are sharing with us is stunning to say the least. I am so grateful to you.

“maintain a fully present awareness” – this is the aspiration in my life and, I believe, the key to spiritual transformation and lasting happiness.

I only disagree on one point, my friend! I agree that it’s important to take care of your health and that good health does give you more physical freedom.

But good health does not determine your freedom. Freedom depends only on the state of your mind. As much as we might care for our body, ill health may suddenly occur due to causes and conditions. Illness can also be a profound teacher and our means of finding true freedom.
