Our loved ones -
whether by blood, by marriage, or by choice -
are delicate treasures.
If we hold them too close, they break -
as a butterfly would.
By honoring and enjoying
the freedom of our loved ones,
we gain our own freedom.
Have the courage to trust that
the beautiful butterflies of your life
will return - or not - as life intends.

Release each fear - your fears about your health,
your family, your job, and every other fear.

There are those who will never admit it.

that should be good for a laugh.
Troubles only appear troubling to those close to them.

The moment you become miserly you are closed
to the basic phenomenon of life: expansion, sharing.

not much money, but a rich you;
not many things, but an open being,
available to millions of things.
