“Committing ourselves to caring for one another and living in a way that is not harmful is the most basic and fundamental protection we can give to and receive from each other. It protects us because, when we are not carried away by greed, hatred or delusion, we do not have to suffer guilt, remorse, confusion and trouble in our hearts. It also protects others from the harm we might cause them.” Sharon Salzberg: Loving Kindness

Service as Joy

April 4, 2011

I slept and dreamt that life was joy

I awoke and saw that life was service

I acted and. behold, service was joy.

Rabindranath Tagore
