Yesterday I started out having what I judged to be a ‘bad day.’ I’d had dental surgery the day before and upon arising, it felt like things were going south in my mouth. Unable to ignore the repeated throbbing in my jaw, I made an appointment with the dentist (not the surgeon who’d performed the procedure). Turns out that dentist is the sweetest (as dentists go). He poked and prodded and took pictures and finally came up with a simple solution to help ease the pain, following which things began to improve. And, he didn’t charge me a dime.

Reflections and Progress

Over the past several weeks we have discussed the topic of happiness and what it truly means to be happy. We have talked about how to use loss as a launch pad, alchemizing the lead of our challenges into the gold of our existence.

Would your description be similar to Peck’s—wanting growth and expansion for yourself or another? Or does love hold a different meaning in your world?

“It is essential to know what is vital and alive in us and [then] shape our lives in its image.”—David Whyte The Heart Aroused.

In his beautiful book, The Heart Aroused David Whyte, beloved author and poet, offers insight and inspiration on how to seed, feed and water the soul, sparking our inner Life Force. Whyte proclaims that when we nourish ourselves from within, we will naturally connect with others, who join us in the pilgrimage of personal discovery. Together, we are bound to become more expanded versions of ourselves and grow exponentially from the conversations and connections that inevitably accompany the joys of our individual and collective journey.

Whyte shares an ancient Chinese tale to emphasize the point. The hero of...
