Develop a Good Heart

If we were to draw one essential
message from the fact of reincarnation,
it would be: develop a good heart,
that longs for other beings to find
lasting happiness, and acts to
secure that happiness.

~Sogyal Rinpoche

Of Note: Do you see the glowing at the star-heart of this morning glory? It is the same in the heart of every being at the place where the Soul resides. "Developing a good heart" requires a connection with that Center. Given a consistent linkage, goodwill then emanates involuntarily. Joy is a byproduct and lasting happiness eventuates. When Humanity learns this lesson, the world will change, maybe in an instant.

When he returns, he'll probably sleep for the rest of the day. Marie took this magical shot last year in her garden. We appreciate that she shares her talent with this blog. Thanks, Sis!
