I like that one Steve. Back when I was working in an office when things got really hectic, schedules and people were really getting on my nerves, I'd stop everything, walk down the hall to the coffee pot, and get a cup of coffee. When I got back I'd have calmed down and could actually get something done.

Listening to your life means having patience. Many of us confront most of life with a prematurely evaluating attitude. We have a natural tendency to make up our mind instantly, the moment we encounter something. The problem is that once we've filed something away with a judgment - even our very selves - we stop seeing it in all its complexity. The wilderness teaches negative capacity, the ability to rest in uncertainty, to not jump to premature conclusions.

Well !

I had no idea that David Brooks of the NY Times wrote a book like that.

With all that has been slung at him over the years, he must be much happier thinking like that ... maybe a monastic retirement is in his future :).

there was an original circle of life or sphere since cells would have been circular floating in a pool or in the ocean. that the circles also get bigger and involve more than one creature should be no surprise. in nature not many things are straight lines for long.
Someone once said too me when something happens in our lives, just like the circles in water everyone nearby will be affected, no matter what it is

:confused: or something like that I really can't remember too tell you truth
