The personal life deeply lived always expands into truths beyond itself - Anais Nin

>> 8 November 2008

Let's tell the truth to the people. When people ask, 'How are you?' have the nerve sometimes to answer truthfully. you must know, however, that people will start avoiding you because thez, too, have knees that pain them and heads that burt and they don't want to know about yours. But think of it this way: If people avoid you, you will have more time to meditate and do fine research on a cure for whatever truly afflicts you.

When people ask, tell them the truth...I LIKE it! "How are you" has become a phrase where we expect the answer to always to "good", "fine", or "ok". But that's not really the truth, is it....

It definitely does take some nerve to answer truthfully!
