February 27--Gentleness

Be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.  --Max Ehrmann

    Reading this quote makes me smile and feel good. It seems that there is a woeful lack of personal gentleness in our world. We are much too hard on ourselves to do and have rather than to simply be. I believe that we not only have a right to be here, but that someway, somehow, we chose to come here at this time. We are each on a soul mission, exploring both our inner and outer universes. 
    Think of a few people who have had a profound impact on your life, and consider how different you and your life would be had they not been here. The same is true for you--there are lives that would be very different had you not been here. You do good work simply being you. Be gentle with yourself.
