A Wider Circle

“Mother Teresa said the problem is, we draw our family circle too small. Your family is all of humanity, all the animals, all beings on earth. Include them all in your heart. Live with gratitude. What the times ask is a change of consciousness—a shift from the fearful, separate consciousness, the consciousness of us versus them, to the consciousness of connection and interdependence. You are already part of this shift. Now each of you, in your way, is invited to find a freedom of spirit no matter what happens, and carry what’s beautiful into the world.”

― Jack Kornfield
