Oh how smoothly, how swiftly and horribly, how cruelly and thoroughly, one discovers the powers and prowess of Maya, the Supreme Power of Illusions!  With a simple sleight of her hand, léger de main, everything changes in a moment; electrically charged, exciting years of life shrink to moments – just to realize that all that fascinating reality had been a dream.  Perhaps all that happened before had been a continuous sequence of beautiful images that one would admire and fall in love with, only to realize at the end that it’s all a game of dreams, illusions and Maya.  The reality also strikes, at the same moment, that everything one would still experience in the future, would see with one’s eyes and feel with one’s hands, up to the moment of one’s death — that everything is not going to be any different in substance, or any different in kind.  Why should it be?  It’s always been all a game, all foam and all dreams.  It’s Maya, the lovely and frightful, delicious and desperate kaleidoscope of life with its searing delights, intertwined with its searing sorrows, the amazing show that has been ongoing since the dawn of Universe.

Unfortunately, in mid-January this year, Deo shutdown shop on his blog.  You can still find his postings.  There just aren’t going to be any new posts until (if) he decides to start back up.  Thank you for the time and energy you did share with us, Deo.  You are missed!  Namaste!!   —  KMAB]
[Ooops!  (per my comment – this has been added for those who don’t read these posts with the comments in view…)  Obviously, rumors of the demise of Deo’s blog were greatly exaggerated (by me).  I am happy to note that Deo’s site is still up and running and still an enjoyable source of interesting information!  —  KMAB]

I am good, but not an angel.  I do sin, but I am not the devil.  I am just a small girl in a big world trying to find someone to love.

I understand why we do that now.  It’s a help, not a threat.  It’s something to remind you how important words are.  Ideas are important.  Principles are important.  Words are important.  Your word is the most important of all.  Your word is who you are.

Success is a finished book, a stack of pages each of which is filled with words.  If you reach that point, you have won a victory over yourself no less impressive than sailing single-handed around the world.

I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure.  I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle.  But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.

To laugh often and love much;
to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children;
to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends;
to appreciate beauty;
to find the best in others;
to give of one’s self;
to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation;
to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived
— this is to have succeeded.
