of happy people and unhappy people
through two different, but complementary mechanisms,

in this case by sharing my emotional outlook on life.

the dust that you have collected in the past,
the flame arises - clean, clear, alive, young.
Your whole life becomes a flame,

Many of us have been conditioned to trust others' opinions
more than our own, and I believe that sort of trust is excessive.
This is especially true with regard to authority figures -

but I don't blindly follow his suggestions
without checking other sources also.
He was trained to prescribe a pill for everything,
and does it with the best of intentions,
but I often choose to trust God's quiet voice inside me
rather than my doctor's medical advice.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
