Open, Honest, Willing

I don't say this often enough but I want to both thank you and congratulate you

for being here.

Thank you because if it weren't for you there would, of course, be no Ordinary

Life Gathering. Though it may seem to you that you benefit from being here -

and, I sincerely hope you do - the person who really is benefited is me. I teach

what I need to learn or what I need to keep learning at deeper and deeper levels.

Thank you for making this possible. And thank you for the roles you play in

making the Ordinary Life Gathering embody some of the principles that are

taught in here.

Second, and don't let this go to your head - that, by the way, is something my

mother would say - congratulations for showing the gumption for being here.
