Maybe I've never put enough effort into growing up. I've been advised to look into it a bit. It has occurred to me lately, however, that every person in my life has had a positive effect on me.
Few people have the luxury of total, complete and unconditional love surrounding them for the first couple of decades of life. I did. I'm not bragging. Oh, I believe that I deserved it. I believe that everyone deserves it.
Now I'm left with a big karmic debt to the planet. Kinda' like some giant student loan that needs to be paid in full using a currency of love and service and understanding. A pure heart gets that way using the regular cycle, not the gentle wash.
