When it comes to celebrating Thanksgiving and this Holyday of Gratitude, I think the Dali Lama said it best:
Everyday, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.
This grateful moment at a sacred waterfall in Hawaii with my extraordinary friend Hiwa. Words cannot begin to describe how grateful I am to have her in my life, but I think the picture does.
