The Answer
to Life's Secrets
is not
like you know your

It's Complex.

If it was Simple
it would be 
to be the REAL

Life would be

It's not just a

The Major Secret

Nice To Say

Golden Rule even,

It's not just something

You start to change.
Something is different.
You see the world,

And have no hope of rising

this seems like

But I believe
that as we grow
we extract more
of the incredible 
daily richness
of life.

Younger folks
need massive amounts
of raw material-
for they are building-

But we elders
are in the garden 
we have made;
all that straw
woven into
golden days.

Your job,
 when confused or upset,
should you choose to accept it,
is simply to reach
for a slightly better feeling
than the current one.

That's it.

Don't seek the overarching answer,
just look for a slightly
better feeling
about what's going on.

Instead of:
"I'm late AGAIN!"
"What if I'm right on time!"

And definitely stay away from
stuff like:
"I'm always late!"
"What's wrong with me?"
and so on . . .
Don't generalize beyond
the present situation.

This sounds simplistic
but many great ideas
are really very simple,
Such as:
"Treat others 
as You wish to be treated."
