The Art of Living

I believe 
all we do 
and say
all of our interactions 
and observations
occur through a perception filter  
our cumulative experience
and collectively 
I believe the art of living 
is the ability 
to acknowledge that filter 
not allowing undue bias 
or prejudice 
as a result
part of human compassion is 
putting oneself emotionally 
where others are and 
acting accordingly
the dark side 
to this empathy 
not all people are kind
not all interactions are positive
not all reactions are altruistic

... and remember, I have a vision of Earth, healed...

Be kind

Sow smiles to reap joy

Look for a path to peace when war seems the only option

We are all made of stardust, so there is more than a bit of heaven and magic in every human you know, meet, or see - regardless of race, creed, religion, or nationality
