What if we really knew

What if we really knew

that life is not about easy answers

but how we live with the questions?

That happiness is not the goal

rather our ability to accept

with compassion and equanimity

all of our feelings?

That the business of selling

is not about how much

we can scam from another

but how well we meet their needs

with honesty and integrity.

Wouldn’t it be great

if religion was more about love than

judgment, shame and blame –

a quick ego fix.

In the end do you really think

that what counts is that

You were always right?

Or you managed to avoid all your sadness?

Or you made tons of money?

Or you called the Sacred by a certain name?

No, my friend

There is but one question,

“How well have you loved?”

All else is just a game of the mind.
