 Overview: Each day we begin again to be a person of great love. In this process of continual spiritual growth we meet up with the joy and wonder of life. We also encounter endless activity, non-awareness, personal weaknesses, difficulties and unexpected turns on the road.  In befriending these barriers and obstacles we discover and claim our inner goodness, and take this with us as we live ever more compassionately in a world filled with suffering.
