As my friend Maud once said, "There are times when you must speak, not because you are going to change the other person, but because if you don't speak, they will have changed you." Melissa McEwan

"My guess is that there's no such thing as "enlightenment." It's impossible for a human being to permanently own a perfect realization of the nature of reality. But if there is anything that comes close to resembling "enlightenment," it's the visceral sensation of feeling close to all living things, and experiencing an ever-renewing empathy and affinity for all living things." Dogen - 13th century Buddhist priest

“Enlightenment is intimacy with all things.” Dogen

"The body heals with play, the mind heals with laughter, the spirit heals with joy."
