It’s not much of

It’s not much of a life you’re living
It’s not just something you take, it’s given — Stay, performed by Rihanna

So many of us judge our lives as not enough.  And we are even harder on others.  We feel we must judge in order to be defined but we don’t actually have to.  It is simply something that we are taught that ultimately drags us into the drama of the world and out of who we are.  There is nothing we need to take from outside of us, no comparison that will make us more that needs to be made to achieve this goal.  Knowing who we are is achieved not by striving to overcome through comparing ourselves to others.  Becoming who we are occurs, like a gift, when we become still and realize that we are enough .  ~Alain & Jody Herriott
