savoring the light

Sitting and breathing mindfully brings four important elements into our lives: peace, clarity, compassion, and courage. When we are peaceful and clear, we are inspired to be more compassionate. Compassion brings courage, and courage brings true happiness.

When you have great compassion in yourself, you have the capacity to act with courage. You have enough courage to look deeply at old habits, acknowledge fear, and make decisions that can cut through craving and anger. If you don’t have enough compassion for yourself and for others, you won’t have the courage to cut off the afflictions that make you suffer.

~Thich Nhat Hanh

it is said we can only live from our own truth….

inquiry for today~ does our truth shift or change?

re-align the diatribe

From which stars have we fallen

to meet each other here?

~Friedrich Nietzsche
