Inspiring thoughts from A Personal Tao

Casey Kochmer’s A Personal Tao blog is the closest I get to spiritual guidance nowadays. It’s part of my daily reading list and is a good antidote to all the mental and emotional chaos I find myself experiencing from time to time. This morning’s post, a response to a set of questions from a student, contains a quote I ought to copy onto a card and carry with me to cut through the crap of those chaotic moments:

I teach many students but we must each must let the heart lead the way. The sooner you can find acceptance, to accept yourself as is, the less hassle you will have later in life to letting go of much of the bull shit we place on ourselves. I wish you peace in that journey of acceptance.

Here’s to letting go of the bull shit, finding acceptance and experiencing true peace. Happy October, everyone.
