Shining Brightly

Here is a contemplation of Empathetic Joy from Buddhist Peace Fellowship, an organization that cultivates compassionate social action.

I notice and delight in the happiness of others--
from the bright, beaming smile of a child,
to youth and elders rising up, incandescent,
for Black lives, gender justice, immigrant rights, queer love,
sacred Earth,
and more.

I shine brightest when others shine too.
