Haiku My Heart: Rebirth

Tags

, , ,

Done for Carpe Diem Haiku Shuukan. And also for Recuerda Mi Corazon

Emphasis is on the E; Engage, enact ethically. Then end the interaction and allow for emergence of the next step. This is the final step in Joan Halifax’s G.R.A.C.E. method. And it’s all about closure. We live in a time when science is validating what humans have known throughout the ages: that compassion is not a luxury; it is a necessity for our well-being, resilience, and survival.
