In a world of people wanting to slim down, my daughter and I are trying to plump up… not physically but spiritually. We’ve figured out that the Ten Commandments and the Golden Rule and all the other guidelines for goodness can be summed up this way: Be Your Bigger Self.
You know your Bigger Self. It’s the self you like best, the generous, loving, open-hearted person that you would like to be all the time. Instead, your Smaller Self often intervenes.
