"What distinguishes faith in ourselves from conceit is the fact that conceit lays claim to specialness, while our fundamental nature is not personal -- it's universal, it's shared." -- Sharon Salzberg Photo credit: "What a night," Klemen Vrankar.
"Deep trust in life is not a feeling but a stance that you deliberately take. It is the attitude we call courage." -- Br. David Steindl-Rast Photo credit: "trusting cooperation," Rolf Dietrich Brecher, 2018.
Take time to be with something you love in nature that brings out your natural curiosity and delight, It may be a wild iris, the shimmering luminescence of water in a stream, the patterns and colors of a butterfly’s wing. Let yourself be drawn to it. Engage your senses. Are you touched by the sense of wonder? --Mark Coleman Photo credit: "Beautiful Blue Butterfly," Bill Staney, 2013.
