Thank-you for this. Your words and intention align with and edify my heart and spirt this morning as I visit this space for my daily dose of inspiration.
Breath is the bridge that brings us home to our bodies, which dwell in the eternal present/presence.
Thank you for today’s sweet teaching.
Nicely done, Rose! Thanks for this sweet offering. I particularly liked the connection made between openness and acceptance. Peace to you and yours.
Beautiful, Fabiana. I feel exactly the same about this and have been practicing smiling, making eye contact, waving, and thanking in my little corner of the world. Love and peace to you and yours.

What a beautiful gift for words you have. I think I’ll go snow shoeing.
Thank-you, my brother, for your immense heart, your good works, and for embodying the continuation of so many great hearts and minds that have come before to show us the way.
Hey, man, this is beautiful. Your message brings a smile and tear (or two). Greetings from beautiful Edgewater, Colorado. Many blessings to your heart and the hearts of your ancestors and dear ones.
Ah, Greta. This is beautiful.
Thanks, Kristi. The timing and thoughtfulness of your words are just perfect. I’ll carry them with me on a hike into the Colorado foothills this morning.
Well done, you.
While sipping coffee
The Sun rises so brightly
On our suffering
First the nightbird sang
Then sunlight answered back
tiny buds on branches
witness robin’s arrival
as daffodils bow
The temple bell stops—
but the sound keeps coming
out of the flowers

I notice beauty
I experience a familiar, primal joy in the marriage of nature and the divine. Awe.
Thank you, Fabiana. You have added beauty to this day’s dawning.
Pure sweetness. Thanks so much, Kristi.
Tiny seed stirring
Veil of all possibility
The light of your heart
Dude. So nice. Okagesama.
Thank-you, Elaine. Thank goodness for small kingdoms.
Thanks, Carol. Your story is very sweet. I had a similar experience once, only it was the middle of the night and somehow the sparrow had found it’s way into our 1/2 bath. (Think closet.) I had gotten up to go the bathroom when I heard and felt these small wings beating around me. The only light was moonlight through the window.

I walked him/her out into the moonlight and released him into the cool air of my back yard. The whole experience felt like a mysterious blessing, somehow. Had I encountered the little bird in my living room before going to work, I’m sure my reaction would have been more like yours. I think setting and timing sometimes make all the difference in how we react. Your ability to use your experience as a lesson in tenderness and compassion is very inspiring. Peace.
