Be a Part of the Universal Good
There is a great universal good now unfolding, and you are a part of it. Everyone is.
~Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian
In this day and age when we are bombarded with bad news, divisive news and angry news we think that is all there is going on in this world. But there is so much more good in the world. We can each accept our responsibility to be a part of the universal good. We can each be attentive to small kindnesses that we receive and to offer those small kindnesses ourselves, each day. Our regular meditation practice calms our minds and opens our hearts to the good all around us. Poet Danusha Lameris said "What if they (small kindnesses) are the true dwelling of the holy, these fleeting temples we make together when we say 'Here have my seat.' 'Go ahead, you first.' 'I like your hat."*
Be attentive. You are a part of the universal good.
