Gathering Words

When my first son was born, a dear friend gave us a lovely book called Frederick by Leo Lionni.

Let Love Reign

What would our world look like if our energies were focused on LOVE over fear?  What would our world feel like if everyone was given equal respect, rights, and compassion?  The Buddha once said, “All that we are is a result of what we have thought.  The mind is everything.  What we think we become.” [...]
