to choose one's own way.

your life won't work,

madly trying the same thing again and again,
your life also won't work.

Once you have seen the truth
you must make the decision to let go
of the pain, anger, and resentment you have been holding on to.
This requires you to take action.
If you are attached to your pain, resentment,
and self-righteousness, and addicted to your emotional reactions,
this will be a difficult step for you.
Taking action requires letting go of the very thing
you have been holding on to for so many years.
There is comfort in what we find familiar,
even if we are experiencing pain and suffering.
The pain and suffering itself becomes the familiarity we seek.
It takes absolute faith in yourself
plus courage, will, and discipline to let go.
But once you let go, it will be as if
the weight of the world has been taken off your shoulders.
In this process it is important to forgive
not just the others in our lives, but also ourselves.
For most people, giving ourselves
the gift of forgiveness is very challenging.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our
lives means the most to us,
we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice,
solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our
pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.
- Henri Nouwen

Let us not be satisfied with just giving money.
Money is not enough, money can be got,
but they need your hearts to love them.
So, spread your love everywhere you go.

Love consists in giving without getting in return;
in giving what is not owed,
what is not due the other.
That's why true love is never based,
as associations for utility or pleasure are,
on a fair exchange.
- Mortimer Adler

The essential elements of giving are power and love -
activity and affection -
and the consciousness of the race testifies that in
the high and appropriate exercise of these is a blessedness greater than any other.
- Mark Hopkins

Pigs prefer to wallow in clean mud, but if nothing else is available,
