As a people we have been inculcated with the wrong ideal that our problems are someone else's fault. Inherent within each moment we have the capacity to acknowledge the fact that in our life the buck stops with us. Placing blame on others is simply faulty excuses and betrays your weakness. Recently I placed blame on others and let my ego control my emotions, which caused me to feel lost. Recently I've seen this happen in a friend of mine, getting overwhelmed by what is impermanent. Recently I employed a tactic to return to peace: I fell in love with the process. Please join me today as we examine the fact that inherent within each moment we have the opportunity to acknowledge that moment's opportunity for growth, to find the beauty, to break down what we will accomplish, and to therefore fall in love with the process.

As Always,
