    Fortunately, the Master did not limit the time frame to be ‘enthusiastic’.
    In today’s fractured personal time, it may be 24 hours or 24 days later, speaking personally, that I can expose myself to the opportunity to be enthused.

      In your paradigm, is enlightenment then also delayed?

      And I believe it is up to each of us who have become aware to help ameliorate the soil. I think of trees that grow out of tiny rock crevices. Sometimes it takes very little encouragement – a well-placed word, a bit of praise, or just listening.
