“Four and a half billion years ago, the Earth was a flaming molten ball of rock and now…it can sing opera.” ~ Brian Swimme

We are magnificent beings, you and I—even in this, our most imperfect form…as we stand here still, yet today, rising above when all else has failed.

And in our hearts, we hold dear humanity’s greatest gift—a brilliant compassion that shines deep from within our very soul.

Compassion is our journey and it is our perfection.

But mostly, it can create opera out of molten goo.

Namaste, my most beautiful friends—and may compassion’s gaze always find you.
