This came from Tricycle the Buddhist Review daily Dharma.
I think this could be adapted for many distressing situations
It is almost impossible, no, it is impossible, to have any idea how to react to a tragedy as profound and senseless as the one that occurred today at an elementary…Continue

Have you ever watched a large flock of birds wheeling and turning in the sky? It is a magnificent sight. Like a single organism, an organic form, fluid and transparent, yet taking on shape and density, they weave and roll in a collective dance.
