In life, we are searching for the better life led or right path. But on our journey, we all come to points where there is a fork in the road. Do we go left or right? One of the great Tibetan lamas summed up a life well traveled as one that only crossed the river once. And once beyond, found what they were looking for. Find your river, cross it, continue without looking back and experience a renewed sense of power and enlightenment. Namaste.
