A Mountain

Took this image in the Welsh countryside

Visionaries and mountains go together. Many a great vision for life has come to people who have sat quietly in the rare air of mountain tops, gazing out into the vastness lined by distant horizons.

A Leaf

You’re a leaf scattered by an invisible wind. Don’t you know something is moving you?

Rumi

Suffering

When we carry our small suffering in solidarity with the one universal longing of all humanity, it helps keep us from self-pity or self-preoccupation. We know that we are all in this together, and it is just as hard for everybody else.

Richard Rohr
