The most sophisticated people I know – inside they are all children.

When I was a kid, I never saw a puppet show. I never played with puppets or had any interest in them.

My hope is to leave the world a little better for having been there.

I believe that life is basically a process of growth – that we go through many lives, choosing situations and problems that we will learn through.

Despite this discussion of things spiritual – I still think of myself as a very ‘human’ being. I have the full complement of weaknesses, fears, problems, ego, and sensuality. But I think this is why we’re here – to work our way through all this, and, hopefully, come out a bit wiser and better for having gone through it all.

I believe that we form our own lives, that we create our own reality, and that everything works out for the best. I know I drive some people crazy with what seems to be ridiculous optimism, but it has always worked out for me.

I spend a few minutes in meditation and prayer each morning. I find that this really helps me to start the day with a good frame of reference. As part of my prayers, I thank whoever is helping me – I’m sure that somebody or something is – I express gratitude for all my blessings and try to forgive the people that I’m feeling negative toward. I try hard not to judge anyone, and I try to bless everyone who is part of my life, particularly anyone with whom I am having any problems.

If our ‘message’ is anything, it’s a positive approach to life. That life is basically good. People are basically good.

Life’s like a movie, write your own ending. Keep believing, keep pretending.
