Open my heart, expand my spirit, clear my mind,
make a wide place for compassion, within me,
that it may may grow and flourish, as I nurture it,
seeing that each of us walks life's path as best we can,
balancing my desires with my needs and others' needs.
Compassion shown, is a bright gift to all around me,
blessing everyone, but especially blessing myself,
it lifts me above mean spiritedness and petty spite,
expands my understanding of others' challenges,
drawing me ever closer to my own divine nature,
comforting those in need, with shared humanity.
Just had the pleasure to view Awake, a dream from Standing Rock Film. A story about water protectors and their resistance to corrupt law and order. Told from an indigenous point of a view, this film is meant to awake all of us to what is happening to our planet. It has to stop. Our earth needs protection more than ever. #istandwithstandingrock#awakeadreamfromstandingrock
