how compassion unfurls

At times the world may seem

an unfriendly and sinister place,

but believe that there is much more good in it

than bad.

All you have to do is look hard enough,

and what might seem to be a series

of unfortunate events may in fact

be the first steps of a journey.

~Lemony Snicket

from the mystery to the path…

inquiry for today~ may the day fulfill a simple prayer…

intricate beauty

When we behave in hurtful ways,

it is because we are caught in some kind of trap.

The more we look through the eyes of wisdom at ourselves

and one another, the more we cultivate a compassionate heart.

~Tara Brach
