“I would like my life to be a statement of love and compassion–and where it isn’t, that’s where my work lies.”
― ram dass
If you want to see humanity
at its most splendid,
sit for a while with those
who have known great suffering.
Drink from the water-cooler
of life with those who have very little worldly wealth.
Cry with those who have faced terrible darkness.
Join in with the song
of the survivors
who made it to the other side..
You will find yourself in kinship
with the most beautiful expressions of humanity
The trees will dance for you
the skies will open up
and butterflies will visit you on tender wings.
You will find yourself rejoicing
in the divinity of humankind…
