The other day I downloaded a new app called Freedom Guru touted as the first emotional wellness app. Each day a ping of my phone delivers to me a thread of wisdom.

This morning: Don’t be afraid to be happy. Your life will get better not worse.
Yesterday: Stop waging war with yourself. That is not the path to freedom.

Some pings move through me without a stir. Others force me to pause and reflect. Sometimes a subtle movement delights me within.

These snippets are not whole philosophies, they don’t pretend to be. But they enrich my days, like little gems of consolation.
