Finding a Measure of Comfort

I share with you a message of comfort, from today’s Weekend Meditation by Katy Brennan from the Archetype Me community:

Many of us read the lovely quote from Fred Rodgers that went viral this week. Ubiquitous as it was, I’d like to launch us into the weekend with a reminder of his sweet and comforting words. “When I was a boy,” he said, “and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’ To this day, especially in times of ‘disaster,’ I remember my mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers — so many caring people in this world.” 

(Katy Brennan teaches Buddhist meditation in New York City and writes frequently on dharma and spirituality. Check out her previous Weekend Meditation column here. )


This is the neighborhood I want to be in.
