The Quotidian, July 15, 2010 ~ Transformation

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”  ~ Anais Nin (February 21, 1903 to January 14,  1977)

In personal transformation, attitude is everything. Everything can change when we make the decisions that we will love without precondition, that we will be ourselves, that we will be free, that we will live with gratitude, and that we will be kind to others and kind to all creatures.

Everything can change when we see and accept that service to others (including service on behalf of Earth and all creatures) is our highest calling.
