Sample text

When we experience loss, we question the meaning of our birth and death and insist that the answer has to come from some suprarational source. But it is difficult to uncover it from this perspective. The meaning of life has to come from within us. And the most satisfying of 40 M AY A L L B E I N G S B E AT P E AC E . those meanings always arise from love: the love of others, the love of work, the love of God, the love of the pilgrimage toward the heart, the love of the art and science of self-discovery.

Mercy is forgiveness or leniency. Sometimes it is even said that it means a boon or blessing-in this case, the boon of mindfulness and the blessing of loving kindness. I'm not suggesting that our grief will completely go away, but rather that it can come to rest in the open heart and softening belly.
