The Fruition of Surrendering

We've officially entered Gratitude Week at EB as Thanksgiving rolls in this Thursday. Still plenty of time to look ahead into 2011 and articulate our glorious intentions to the universe for how to live and love fully.  Did you know that you could have everything you've ever desired?  It's true.  There is a price, however, as with all things of value.

Inspired by The Spiritual Teachings of Ramana Maharshi

One teeny tiny question. One simple question at the root of it all. A timeless question to open our eyes, to begin the journey, to reinvigorate the journey, to find the truth, to deliver to you what has always been missing, the "something" missing thing. You don't need a stack of books to answer it. You don't need to travel around the world and find a guru to answer it for you. Surrounding yourself with things and objects and desires won't make it any more evident. Take note:  You won't wake up one day with a definitive answer. You won't find a map with an X on the spot-it's not necessary.
