None of us are completely present. Richard Roher

None of us are completely present.

So don’t feel guilty.

This is the ideal, the enlightened moments that come now and then.

But we do know that when we are manipulating, changing, controlling, and fixing, we are not there yet.

The calculating mind is the opposite of the contemplative mine.

The first is thought by the system, the second by the spirit.
