Thanks to Astrid for posting this link to an incredibly beautiful and inspiring film of the beauty of our blue planet and the people with which we share it. From the film, these words from Thich Nhat Hahn:
Following the sound of the bell, my breath brings me back to the safe island of mindfulness. In the garden of my heart, the flowers of peace bloom beautifully. . . .
May the sound of the bell penetrate deep into the cosmos.
Even in the darkest spots living beings are able to hear it clearly.
So that all suffering in them cease. Understanding comes to their heart, and they transcend the path of sorrow and death
This is the announcement site of a Global Meditation and Prayer Vigil to be held March 28 from 10-11 PST, or 1-2 EST. What a beautiful way to be reminded that we truly are all one in our love of life and of the planet, and to unite our energy in a positive manner to effect real change in the world.
