Compassionate action starts with seeing yourself when you start to make yourself right and when you start to make yourself wrong.

At that point you could just contemplate the fact that there is a larger alternative to either of those, a more tender, shaky kind of place where you could live.

~ Pema Chödrön

 

An attitude of gratitude comes from an understanding that we may all have problems, but we don’t have all the problems.

We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity.

Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.

~ Paulo Coelho
