I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration; I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or dehumanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.

         Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Floating Reed“To a mind that is still, the entire universe surrenders.”

Chuang-tzu

Our moments of illumination are like diamonds twinkling atop a moonlit sea, reflecting a light that emanates from a source far beyond the world it bathes.
