50, female, widowed, voluptuously filled with a pillow top. I enjoy taking risks, and living and embracing each day as though it were my last. There is no arena of life that escapes our efforts to influence, manage, and control. We attempt to manage our relationships, career, thoughts, feelings, and the physical world! We try to alter our experience with drugs, alcohol, religion, meditation, entertainment, and sex, and by participating in various courses and disciplines.In many ways the very range and complexity of options have been useful. Certainly many people who would not otherwise have been exposed to developing their potential have had opportunities to grow, learn, and establish more satisfying lives. However, this has also created confusion. The enormous range and sometimes inflated promises for happiness and liberation have served to perplex and disappoint many. Many don't know where next to turn, or which advice to take.
It is becoming obvious that while the existing paradigm which has opened up new possibilities for increased happiness and wellbeing, it has also rejected other avenues and perspectives that are genuine and authentic sources of inner harmony and peace. Aho Mituke Oysasin
