“When life feels too big to handle, go outside. Everything looks smaller when you’re standing under the sky.” ~L.R. Knost

“Lovingkindness is a profound recognition that our lives have something to do with one another, that everyone counts, everyone matters.” ~Sharon Salzberg
Lovingkindness is more than just a vague sense of well wishing for others. It’s a deep knowledge that we are all connected and are all one in ways that are deeper than words than convey. It’s knowing and acting on the reality that everyone does count and everyone does matter.

“The Journey isn’t about becoming another person, but loving who you are right now.” ~Suzanne Heyn
