".....When we feel lonely, when we feel hopeless, what we want to do is move to the right or
left.  We don't want to sit and feel what we feel.  We don't want to go through the detox.  Yet
the middle way encourages us to do just that.  It encourages us to awaken the bravery that
exists in everyone without exception, including you and me...."
Pema Chodron,
When Things Fall Apart
".....If anything matters, then
everything matters.  Because
you are important, everything
you do is important.  Every
time you forgive, the universe
changes; every time you reach
out and touch a heart or a life,
the world changes; with every
kindness and service, seen or
unseen, my purposes are
accomplished and nothing will
ever be the same again...."
