Helpful Quotes

Below are some thoughts by Stephen Levine and Ram Dass that you may find helpful in reminding us all that we are not alone and in helping us to begin to forge a different perspective about our struggles.


The Mother of Mercy Meditation
Stephen Levine

May all beings be free of suffering.

May all beings' hearts be open to their pain.

The light flooding their shared heart.

Each heart encouraging the earth to heal.

Each exhalation carrying the light back to sentient beings everywhere.

May all beings be free of suffering.

May all beings be at peace.

May all beings dissolve the shadows of the past into the light of the healing present.

May we all live in mercy and care for each other and for ourselves.

May we all come to treasure ourselves and each other.

And may we all come to treasure each other in ourselves.

(Excerpted from Guided Meditations, Explorations and Healings
by Stephen Levine)


Ram Dass
The pain of the world will sear and break our hearts because we can no longer keep them closed. We’ve seen too much now. To some degree or other, we have surrendered into service and are willing to pay the price of compassion.

But with it comes the joy of a single, caring act. With it comes the honor of participating in a generous process in which one rises each day and does what one can. With it comes the simple, singular grace of being an instrument of Love, in whatever form, to whatever end.
