It speaks through its constant tiny dance, sometimes swaying, sometimes a-jitter, sometimes trembling. It speaks through the leaping of the heart, the falling of the spirit, the pit at the center, and rising hope.”

But we tend to forget … When we see that our suffering and anger are no different from their suffering and anger, we will behave more compassionately.”
