Responding and reaching out to one another With joy
“The things that matter most in our lives are not fantastic or grand. They are moments when we touch one another, when we are there in the most attentive or caring way. This simple and profound intimacy is the love that we all long for. These moments of touching and being touched can become a foundation for a path with heart, and they take place in the most immediate and direct way. Mother Theresa put it like this: “In this life we can not do great things. We can only do small things with great love.””

The boundary of what we can accept in ourselves is the boundary of our freedom.
We can open our hearts to spacious tender feeling; we can embrace all the emotions: love, hate, loss, exhilaration and use them as energy to fuel our lives. We can soar if we choose.
