Life is full of challenges for all of us. Each of us has some struggle that goes unknown to most people. Often I forget this fact when I am swimming in self-pity, worrying about things that I can not control or change.
Have you ever sat on a park bench and "people watched?"
Visiting the nursing home, I have met many folks; all of them with a life that is just as special as mine. All of them experienced love at one time in their lives. Success, failures, heartaches, loss... every one of the people I see sitting in wheelchairs in the lobby of the home have experienced life.
Compassion flows through my veins, it's the essence of my spiritual life. I believe that we are all connected and we all need each other to remind us about the importance of love. Why do we forget in the first place?
Ignorance is bliss.
