Jonathan is amused. I am currently reading A New Earth. And talking at length about each chapter as I finish reading it. He listens and he nods and he even discusses the ideas in the book with me ... but I know he is amused. Because I have always been so judgmental about self-help books.
I have always been so judgmental period. And I want to stop that crap now. Right now. So let me just roll my eyes at myself one last time because I am reading this book that Oprah has been ranting about for so long now, this book that has become such a phenomenon. Because I am such a follower. Oprah says "Jump!" and I say, "How high?"
And that's it. No more Judgy MacJudgerson. Not gonna go there. Anymore.
Because this book, this Oprah recommendation, is really interesting.
I have become very intrigued by the idea of inner peace.
(Are you laughing at me?) Zen. Salvation. Call it whatever you want. I want it. I want to be a serene, happy, peaceful, peace-filled, nonjudgmental, accepting, loving person. I want to love everyone. Not just my friends and family. Not just my fellow Democrats. Not just Weezer. Not just Jane Austen fans.
I want to love everyone.
