that's what I'm talking about!

i wasn't a lance fan; ever. but following these past 3 weeks, i generated a lot of respect for the guy. he actually showed amazing humility, fire, drive and humantude (if such a word). found this picture of him and love it. it shows his willingness to expose his human quality, fitness, passion and whimsey. look forward to seeing more of him in france next year, probably with clothes on (drats).

Tidbits from Weekend Meditations

Some thoughts I don't want lose that were poignant for me this weekend.

a) Awareness is knowledge. Knowledge destroys the seeds of karma/old patterns/latent DNA (whatever you want to call it). Once you integrate knowledge into you life it becomes WISDOM!

b) Logic can bring you to the truth (which is not linear but spherical - get that one), but then it only takes you so far and then needs to be put aside; like driving your car to your living room (you need to park it in the garage and walk the rest of the way).

c) Teachers don't teach, they confuse - so that the pupil has an eye for wonder/searching/seeking. In ethiopia post the famine, people were so accustomed to receiving food that once the drought ended no one knew/could/desired to farm.

d) In the presence of fear there is a lack of love; real courage is in surrendering.
