“When we start being too impressed by the results of our work, we slowly come to the erroneous conviction that life is one large scoreboard where someone is listing the points to measure our worth. And before we are fully aware of it, we have sold our souls to the grade-givers.”

Question for Meditation: Where do you find your worth?

“No despair of ours can alter the reality of things, or stain the joy of the cosmic dance which is always there … We are invited to forget ourselves on purpose, cast our awful solemnity to the winds and join in the general dance.”

Question for Meditation: Take a moment today to let go of what you whatever keeps you from joy.
