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

We did it! Last night, on my bday, we had a big day, I worked even after my party: 2 million readers in the last 30 days. It’s a goal I’ve reached for, for a year or more.

    Congratulations Way. You bloody well deserve it mate. Live long and prosper (you and EJ both)!

  6. I know that this was a birthday gift brought on by dedication, hard work and, obviously, tenacity and belief—but it sure does feel like synchronicity with the timing. Way to go, Waylon and elephant journal! (The fact that you chose stellar editors doesn't hurt either 😉
