Reflecting -

It is a week to give thanks.  Perhaps every week should be that week, but this one is set aside with a day for gathering, feasting, and giving thanks.  Thanksgiving.

And yet if one reads the news, it is hard to balance disaster after disaster, with the peaceful place of giving thanks.

I am with two quotes.



Life is a good teacher and a good friend. Things are always in transition if we could only realize it. Nothing ever sums itself up in the way that we would like to dream about. The off-center, in between state is an ideal situation, a situation in which we don't get caught, and in which we can open our hearts and minds beyond limit.



Pema Chodron




Pity arises from meeting pain with fear. Compassion comes when you meet it with love.

- Stephen Levine





For  today, I pray to dance with compassion while balancing off-center with an open, exploratory mind and a joy-filled open heart.
