    It is foolishness to jump into the river to save some one drowning without knowing swimming. So it is not selfishness to keep oneself busy in learning swimming while others are drowning. Renouncing the world in search of truth is, therefore, not selfishness.

    GRACE is a word we can keep in our minds when we walk, dance, swim, talk, sing, do anything at all - to enable us to get in 'the zone' where everything flows more easily - where everything feels lighter, and we are in a peak state. Grace allows us to follow our inner guidance - be true to who we are - and give our gifts lightly to the world. It's one of those magic words!
