When looking through the eyes of compassion you may be brought to a totally different view. Here’s “The Story of the Ugly Cat”: Everyone in the apartment complex where I lived knew who Ugly was.

Smile Though Your Heart Is Aching

LIVING WITH A DREAM: What You’re Looking For

Listen to “What You’re Looking For” from the “Living With a Dream” compilation. The words that make this song especially meaningful for me are “trouble less, surrender more”, which to me is about being more present in the moment and not worrying so much about tomorrow. Focusing on the “here and now” and the things we can control vs. those we can’t leads to a more fulfilling and peaceful life. If you want to use this song as a reminded you can get a copy on the Music page, where you’ll also find other songs with inspirational messages.
