Real Love is Unconditional




“Yes, love, ...but not the love that loves for something, to gain something, or because of something, but that love that I felt for the first time, when dying, I saw my enemy and yet loved him. I knew that feeling of love which is the essence of the soul, for which no object is needed. And I know that blissful feeling now too. To love one's neighbours; to love one's enemies. To love everything - to Love God in all His manifestations. Some one dear to one can be loved with human love; but an enemy can only be loved with divine love. And that was why I felt such joy when I felt that I loved that man. What happened to him? Is he alive? ...Loving with human love, one may pass from love to hatred; but divine love cannot change. Nothing, not even death, can shatter it. It is the very nature of the soul."


-Prince Andrei, War & Peace by Leo Tolstoy

Beautiful Reno- Tahoe

    "Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering." 


Thank you, Cory, for being such a considerate (and fun!) tour guide!

The Simple Pleasures




A dashboard light came on (the one behind the Shiva image). It looked like an old video camera or a clumsy Aladdin's lamp, but I knew it was neither.

I immediately took a photo and texted it to Dreyfus: "What does this mean?"

"Check Engine," he replied. I envisioned a long and expensive trip to the mechanic. The mind protested.

A few hours later, he texted "Could be a loose or worn-out gas cap." and attached this article.

So the next day I fiddled with the gas cap after parking at the Fancy Health Club.

After class: no light!

Jai Guru!
