Happy Earth Day!

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” Albert Einstein

What an amazing planet! The emergence of spring is a reminder of what a miracle it is.

The wisdom in every plant, every bulb...knowing just when to emerge and being perfectly designed and packaged to unfold into these extraordinary structures.

Be in awe! Enjoy being at one with it all!

Dear Friends,

I hope this finds you well and happy and feeling deeply a part of mother earth. Thay always reminded us that to talk of environment as if it were outside of ourselves was incorrect. We are the environment. To take good care of the environment is taking good care of ourselves.

Thay gave a beautiful talk about this which you can find on youtube...simply type in "Moving Beyond the idea of Environment" Enjoy!

This is just a reminder that there will be a gathering of the Sangha on Sunday evening at 6 PM at our home at 725 Matunuck School House Rd, Wakefield. We will enjoy sitting, walking in the garden (weather permitting) and sitting. I will offer a short talk (this is my first venture since being in the hospital and my energy is limited!) And we will share the Dharma. It will be wonderful to be able to be together again. I hope you will be able to join us.

I have been so moved by all of your beautiful well wishes and heartfelt prayers. Please keep them coming....and...

enjoy every moment!

with much love and gratitude, Joanne

“People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child—our own two eyes. All is a miracle.” ― Thich Nhat Hanh, The Miracle of Mindfulness: An Introduction to the Practice of Meditation
