Wasn't Jesus the original hippie? With his sandals, dress and kind, compassionate, tender, joyful nature? What a loaded word that is! I am oftentimes called a hippie – in some ways, I am, some not. I am an Older Mom with Young Kids and Older Kids, Four in All – Remarried, Striving to make a Step Family with Love and God's help.
What do sad people have in common?
It seems they have all built a shrine to the past
And often go there and do a strange wail and worship.
What is the beginning of happiness?
It is to stop being so religious
–The Gift: Poems by Hafiz, The Great Sufi Master,

The above is on the first page of the new book by Betsy Chasse Tipping Sacred Cows. The other day via a random Facebook post, I saw this book and knew that I had to order it.
It came in the mail yesterday on a day that I was thinking a lot about the nature of sadness. I opened up the first page and read the above quote. I can’t wait to read the rest of it.
