“The miracle is not to walk on water. The miracle is to walk on the green earth, dwelling deeply in the present moment and feeling truly alive.”
― Thich Nhat Hanh
I love being alive at this time on this planet!!! I am so thankful for it. In this moment I feel joy and a sense of satisfaction. That doesn’t mean I’m not aware of the million of injustices that go on at any given time nor that I don’t feel the pain of others. Pain and joy are not exclusive of each other and allowing myself to celebrate each moment does not negate compassion. Indeed it gives me the strength to help others and the drive to find opportunities to do so. Compassion feeds compassion and it spreads like a virus… So does joy.
