Morning Meditation on A Hillside

Deepak Chopra says: "Accept people, circumstances, and events as they are in this moment. When you combine acceptance, responsibility and defenselessness, your life flows with effortless ease". 

I love the idea of this, but as soon as I am ready to peacefully meditate on it, all I can think is: Fuck you Rush Limbaugh. Fuck you Ann Coulter and what's that other jackass's name, whatever it is, fuck him and that nightmare marionette doll/NRA president, and fuck the Westboro Baptist Church. Fuck the people who never read or encourage thought and open-mindedness. Fuck people who torture animals and abuse children. Fuck all of you and, as much as I hate to say it, fuck the horses you rode in on. Don't act like you don't all ride the same float in this parade. You know you do. Hmph...mean, ugly, sick, crazy, hateful. 


Okay, okay, take a deep motherfucking cleansing breath: All problems contain the seeds of opportunity and this awareness allows you to take the moment and transform it into a better situation. If you do this, every upsetting situation becomes the opportunity for something new and beautiful, every tormentor or tyrant becomes your teacher.

I'm trying, Deepak.
