Being Mindful

Being Mindful

“Today, more than ever before, life must be characterized by a sense of Universal responsibility, not only nation to nation and human to human, but also human to other forms of life.” (Dalai Lama)

We are all connected. People to earth, earth to butterfly, butterfly to rhino, rhino to the moon and on and on and on. We are all dependent on the health of our planet – our home. Sometimes, when I am meditating and feel the reality of it all, I feel hopeless. But after returning back to the world the shade is drawn again and I feel more positive. Each of us must find a way to make a slight difference in their world. I work towards that every day. While I generally fall short of my goals I console myself by saying I’m at least mindful, and that I’m trying. However, as the wise Yoda says…”Don’t try…DO.” Yes, Yoda….
