Please watch out for each other.

Love everyone.

Forgive everyone, including yourself.

Forgive your anger, forgive your guilt, your shame, your sadness.

Embrace and open up your love, your joy, your truth, and most especially your heart.

Let us all have mercy on each and every one of us.

And every day, we will open up like a cocoon
and turn into beautiful butterflies
and live this moment,
and the next,
and the next
and the next.......
