The 3 Rules I Live By

1) Paradox

Life is a mystery. Accept it and don’t waste time trying to figure it out. Accept that opposites can and do exist and can do so in harmony. Both/and is how the world works. Either/or is a limiting black and white way of operating and costs you the glory and beauty that is found in the gray.

2) Humor

Keep a sense of humor, especially about yourself. It is a strength that will carry you through countless tough spots and moments of darkness and allow you to enjoy the unbridled joy of the moment.

3) Change

Know that nothing stays the same. Relinquish the idea that you can control your environment. Relinquish the desire to be anywhere other then you are right now. Surrender the desire to change the moment you exist in this moment. Embrace change and you’ll see the Divine at work in the world around you.
