'The Four Immeasurables'

It's easy to forget the measure of Mother Nature's power. Hurricane Irene (which was downgraded to a tropical storm by the time it reached Connecticut) reminded me of Her great kindness as well as Her frightful muscle. Her force is beautiful and spine-chilling. Prayers of recovery to all those impacted by Irene! Stay well, my friends!

Four Immeasurables

May all beings have happiness and its causes,

May they never have suffering nor its causes;

May they constantly dwell in joy transcending sorrow;

May they dwell in equal love for both near and far.

- Buddhist Prayer of Recovery
