    Reflecting back on time we learned that earning the opportunity to plunge into or dedicate our time to any task or desired vision one could be rewarded thru status or power of higher authority or ego which overtime that void was worthless, until we learned practicing mindfulness sangha style which produces the peaceful and joyful energy in a wonderful way that’s nourishing & brings consciousness to one another which creates a joyful flow when serving. My shared thoughts with lovingkindness to all,
