The universe sings no less
Because time and space
Wear us thin.
The music calls us
To recognize our limitations,
To recognize that
The song is best
sung with others.
— Manish K. Mishra-Marzetti

When are you responding with integrity, out of a clear and healthy sense of self? When are you reactive, responding to the chronic anxiety that surrounds us? What practices will help you nurture your spiritual well-being?
