The art of happiness is also the art of suffering well.

When we learn to acknowledge, embrace, and understand our suffering,
we suffer much less. Not only that,
but we’re also able to go further and transform our suffering
into understanding, compassion, and joy for ourselves and for others.

Nurtured Enough

October 28, 2015 at 9:19 am (photographs) (, , , , )

May this be a world where people
feel comforted enough and nurtured enough
to take care of each other as if they were kin.

*May our way of life benefit the well-being of all beings.

Sylvia Boorstein
Solid Ground, page 125

* my paraphrase of the last line

Two neighbor children who saw me shoveling our driveway and asked to help. 🙂
They’ve since moved, i miss their cheerful countenance.
