  • Aspiration was a discussion topic on the monastery site a few years back.  The introduction put forth by the discussion facilitator was this: This morning a young musician was being interviewed and she was asked, "What is your aspiration?" She replied, "To be happy."  Is it that simple?  We think we're so much better than the young, yet these young people are not jaded and beaten down by years of struggle.  Perhaps we simply forget what it is to aspire to something better.  Perhaps it really is that simple, and we lost this simplistic focus somewhere along our path.


    Are aspirations a good thing, or should we just take what life deals us? Are we a bump on a log or a tree soring toward the light? Maybe we should take a moment and consider what we truly aspire toward, and then move toward it. To read the rest of this post, please follow the attached link:  Aspiration
