Daily Inspirational Message for February 4, 2014


Experience life in all possible ways – good-bad, bitter-sweet, dark-light, summer-winter. Experience all the dualities. Don’t be afraid of experience, because the more experience you have, the more mature you become.
– Osho

As I write this, we’re in the thick of winter here and have had record setting low temperatures and snow fall. School has been canceled all week long and many people are housebound. I just saw someone on Facebook who lives in tropical Florida say that she would trade her year-round warm weather for ours because she misses the change of seasons. While some may say she’s crazy, I know where she’s coming from: it is by living a wide variety of experiences that life feels richest; it is winter that makes summer feel so precious; it is loss that reminds us to love and appreciate all we have today.
