DECEMBER 5 FREEING

I don’t like spinach, and I’m glad I don’t, because if I liked it I’d eat it, and I just hate it.
Clarence Darrow

FREEING

I had a relative who was opposed to happiness. She would ask, “Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone just did exactly as they wanted?” I don’t know why her question would always reduce me to crumbles of laughter. Maybe I couldn’t understand that she had a deep-seated belief that people were basically prone to trouble. Perhaps, in my innocence, I thought differently about people. It seemed to be a marvelous idea that every person should do exactly as they wanted.

Today, as an adult, being well aware of my connection to all life and to other people, I find more and more that what I want is for those around me to do exactly as they want.
