The River is the River, and that is all there is to it.

a time for repose and contemplation.

in a cosmic religion for the future:

natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity.

Savor the adventure.

as you did on that roller coaster.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

If you have an emotional reaction in the presence of someone,
your heart is telling you that you have
not resolved your issues with them.
In other words, you have not truly forgiven that person.
All of this begs the question, how do we forgive?
First, cease lying to yourself and stop telling yourself stories
about why you behave the way you do.
Stop blaming your behavior on other people
and take responsibility for your emotional reactions.
If you could forgive all the people in your life
who have hurt or wounded you
it would be possible to be in control of your behavior
instead of being in reaction to other people all of the time.
Imagine living life without experiencing
a constant emotional roller-coaster of pain, anger, and jealousy!
That would be bliss!
- Sheri Rosenthal

and as often as they do us this service we lay them aside.

deliberate, contrived and dishonest,
but the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.
