Quote:
Woe to people who look without understanding, who do not know their foundations. - The Talmud
The meaning of life is revealed to those who are ready to accept things which will be revealed. And it is he who has already decided that he will accept the truth as it is and is willing to change the way of life he or she has been accustomed to. If we are ready for the knowledge and wisdom, we then ask and it is presented to us.

This quote and the one before are from the Newsletter Antesian Road to Enlightenment and used with permission.

One of the greatest of gifts has been the awareness of the fact that if something is comfortable, it doesn't necessarily mean it is right. In fact, in reality, it is the complete opposite. When it is comfortable, it is like a well worn shoe, it needs to be removed, and possibly with new structure, more secure reinforced concepts, and from a complete new understanding.

It often causes pain and a few sore spots, but in the end, the new product looks and works so much better we wonder how we ever managed before.

I like the word foundation. I need to look at what it is built on, and whether it needs reinforcing and repair, or is it better, to tear down and rebuild.
