Do your beliefs provide the circuitry for your greatest good?

“Hard is relative.”–Shonda Rhimes I’m more or less illiterate when it comes to anything electrical. I know what a plug looks like and I know how to attach it to a wall socket.

Be recklessly generous and relentlessly kind

“It’s not our job to play judge and jury, to determine who is worthy of our kindness and who is not. We just need to be kind, unconditionally and without ulterior motive, even – or rather, especially – when we’d prefer not to be.”–Josh Radnor Left to its own devices, the human mind is quick […]

One more deep, happy mystery just proved by physicists at Delft University

“‘I should’, ‘I shouldn’t’, ‘you should’, ‘you shouldn’t’, ‘I want’, ‘I need’–these unquestioned thoughts distort the appearance of the good that is as common as grass.
