1a contesdulitclosr00botr_0051

“I know whether or not I am confused most readily by noticing–being mindful of–my capacity for feeling caring concern. … when I feel myself in caring connection–encouraging, consoling, or appreciating–I feel the twin pleasures of clarity and goodness. It doesn’t matter if the connection I feel is to myself or a person I know or people I don’t know or even the whole world. The lively impulse of caring is what counts. ”
― Sylvia Boorstein, Happiness Is an Inside Job: Practicing for a Joyful Life
