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.

Beautiful Celestine, every day is indeed a gift!
Thank you Laura. Grateful for this day. 🙂
This is beautiful, Celestine. I must visit Shuukan ….I always forget and yet I have it on my list of Daily Prompts I follow. Reaching out with compassion is always a gift twofold…such a wonderful feeling of grace to give.
Oliana, thanks. It would be great to have you at Haiku Shukaan. 🙂 LOL, I know about the forgetting. 🙂
I used to check on Tuesdays but that changed. On my day off next week I’ll go over the life lessons I find profound at Shikaan
