"HUMOR AND OPENNESS
Learning how to be kind to ourselves is important.
When we look into our own hearts and begin to discover what is confused and what is brilliant, what is bitter and what is sweet, it isn’t just ourselves that we’re discovering.
We’re discovering the universe. When we discover the buddha that we are, we realize that everything and everyone is Buddha.
We discover that everything is awake, and everyone is awake. Everything and everyone is precious and whole and good. When we regard thoughts and emotions with humor and openness, that’s how we perceive the universe." ~ Pima Chodron

I'm not a Buddhist. I really don't know that much about Buddhism. But I do like these thoughts expressed by Pima Chödrön.
Being good to others and to ourselves. Seeing the value in others and in ourselves. Connecting with and appreciating nature to help us discover the good in all things.
