world itself needs us to show up in our fullness because the world
itself is suffering a dis-ease, suffering ultimately from the human mind
with all its precocities in some areas and its huge lack of development
in other areas. The world needs all its flowers, every single one, even
if they bloom for the briefest of moments we call a lifetime. Can we
realize the flowering that our life actually is and open to it for the
cultivation of mindfulness in ways that will give it
back to us in its fullness and allow us to live our lives as if they
really mattered, because they do, and in this way experiencing the
flowering of genuine happiness and wisdom, self-compassion and
compassion for others, in ways that are healing for ourselves and for
the world we are all inhabiting, which never were actually separate.
"May you walk in beauty every day. May you stand in your truth. May you
wake up to the beauty within you and around you for the sake of
yourself and for the sake of all beings, near and far, known and
unknown." ---Jon Kabat Zinn.
