i drove through windy country roads
the beauty of nature enveloping me
and in that moment, i was happy
so i smiled.
The depth of suffering endured by people all around the world simply breaks my heart. It is of such an unimaginable proportion that at times, I can literally feel their pain. Today is one of those days. I am thinking of those who will continue to suffer daily, and remain neglected, because their story is no longer of interest to the media networks and their ratings. I thought to myself...
if there was a bridge
connecting the world,
what would you do?
May I become at all times
Both now and for ever
A protector for the helpless,
A guide for the lost ones,
A ship for those to cross oceans,
And a bridge to cross rivers,
A sanctuary for those in danger,
A lamp for those in darkness,
A refuge for those who need shelter,
A servant to all in need.

July 6, 2010 will be the Dalai Lama's 75th birthday - he will be 3/4 of a century old. So I started to think...what on earth could I do to celebrate such a wonderful day? Aha! - how about making a little contribution to help build a bridge of love around the world?
would you like to join me in doing a random act of kindness on Tuesday, July 6, 2010?
have a conscious friday and a divine weekend. one love.
