monday moment of zen


"when we are in pain, we become self-centered and myopic. when we heal, we become more empathetic, self-less, and sympathetic to the pain and welfare of others. it is our gift to others to heal ourselves."

I love this Melita! This is one reason that prompted me to take MBSR and seek my own wellness. How can I treat others effectively when I'm stressed and need healing? I am working towards "practicing what I preach." :)

Exactly! Our ability to experience the process of healing puts us in a better place to facilitate the healing of others. :)
