Death is devastating and it is sacred. Love is blissful and it is heart wrenching. Life is sublime and it is horrific. When we can open our hearts enough to embrace all of these, then we are free.
Sacred Gifts of a Short Life
Looking through the lens of “right and wrong” isn’t helpful because it assumes there is an objective correct answer. ……we decrease our suffering (and the suffering of others) when we learn to accept uncertainty and come from a space beyond right and wrong.
Sacred Gifts of a Short Life
Your furry loved ones love and trust you unconditionally. They know your decisions come from love. They will never question this. Give yourself the gift of that same degree of trust.
Sacred Gifts of a Short Life
When we’re present with someone, we close the gap between “us” and “them,” and we become one. Love is amplified.
