Walking the gravel road in the canyon surrounded by the beautiful front range mountains I contemplated the suffering of so many with this disease. I felt a wave of compassion, understanding and love move through me out to all of us dealing with problems that cause us to suffer. This seemed somehow to lessen the suffering in the world, I hope so.

Settling in to this new added perspective of my life, I know it is imperative I stay focused in the present. Here is the power – in the present moment.

I know I can always answer the call of the present.

There is a deep peacefulness that settles in my being as I feel the connectedness with all others.
