In honor of this moment of accomplishment in beginning to reach beyond our core or choir and to all those who don’t yet know they give a care about the mindful life, a favorite quote that’s helped me understand my own heart and this life:
“Hold the sadness and pain of samsara in your heart and at the same time the power and vision of the Great Eastern Sun. Then the warrior can make a proper cup of tea.” ~ Pema Chodron
