“Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love; this is the eternal rule.” Buddha
Generally I like to focus The Daily Greens on all things yoga, eco-chic, and health friendly. It’s not really my job or desire to cover the grizzly happenings in the world. The purpose of The Green Yogi is to bring love and light to our students and blog readers.
In light of the events in Aurora Colorado, however, I feel like I need to express my deepest sympathies to the victims and extended community of this horrific tragedy.
I don’t know if it’s possible to make sense of an event that is utterly senseless. I’ve had a wide range of emotions boiling up in me the past few days; sadness, rage, sympathy, confusion, fear… For the survivors, community, and our nation it is truly a sad time.
There are so many appropriate quotes I could have used from the Buddha, but his message of love is simple and pure. We are a collective human race and when tragedies like this happen we are all diminished. What would happen if we all lived to give others love?
