Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at the moment.
— Eckhart Tolle
I would draw you a map
to happiness. One-hundred
percent scale.The path would be strewn
with small happinesses—
the taste of the rye as it hides
in the bread, the three red geraniums
still blooming in November,
a tune from an old musical.
I would draw the path in real time,
each new step appearing every time
you move your feet.
