Sunday - Saying Yes to the World

Are we not ignoring our beauty and our remarkable potential, a mysterious flowering of possibility for true intelligence in this more-than-strange universe that is our home and that we might learn to be more at home in?

Are we not ignoring the miracle of the human form, this thimbleful of atoms birthed in stars that is the human body, the utter gift of a human life and the possibility of it being lived fully and well, in touch with rather than ignoring our fundamental creativity and the mystery of our sentience, our consciousness, our presence here, our absolute need for each other, our ability to look in awe and wonder and in knowing, upon the universe within which we emerged and which we now inhabit?
John Kabat-Zinn, Coming to Our Senses

Yes, we are...but there is work ahead and we must steel ourselves for that.
