An Om Gal Birthday

So, let's cut to the chase- today's my birthday, which reminds me of one of my favorite birthday cards, received about eight years ago from a childhood friend. On the front, it illustrated two Buddhist monks, one receiving a birthday gift from the other while exclaiming, "Just what I've always wanted!" Inside, the monk was portrayed gleefully opening an empty box and elaborating, "Nothing!"

Thank you for your readership, reflections, and input this year. To you, it may seem like nothing much, but I am very grateful.

Happy Birthday Om Gal.

Must be the season: My client this morning was also celebrating his - and I'm only 12 days behind you (and just a "few" years ahead at the same time) - so how can something be more and less at the same time?

Same way Nothing (as the Buddhist Monk celebrated Nothing as though it was All) can simultaneously be ALL – like all colors of light together give us pure white and all colors of pigment together give us black.

No, I’m not smoking anything – you just get me thinking☺

Again, Happy Birthday!!
