I am trying to stay calm this morning as I have an early dentist visit, not my favorite thing.  Ironically, my dentist's office sits under the office of my accountant, so I left him at five with the unpleasant news that not only is there no refund, but we owe, and now, I return to the same place today - wonderful people, and yet, I don't enjoy someone fiddling with my teeth.  I look for a quote to calm, and come across this.

Without the rigidity of concepts, the world becomes transparent and illuminated, as though lit from within.  With this understanding, the interconnectedness of all that lives becomes very clear.  We see that nothing is stagnant and nothing is fully separate, that who we are, what we are, is intimately woven into the nature of life itself.  Out of this sense of connection, love and compassion arise.

So, now, if I can just dissolve my concept of what it means to go to the dentist, all will transparent, illuminated, and light.

It's not working.

Enjoy a beautiful day!
