You are a baker.
A nurse or a barista.
You're a neighbor. A friend.
You're the girl down the street. The guy with the hat.
The ordinariness of your appearance conceals your practice.
But inside, you train your mind.
You practice compassion.
You cut through bias and judgement.
You are patient, generous, and kind.
You care for others.
Your lived practice is extraordinary.
No one will ever know the impact of your practice on the lives of others. Maybe not even you.
Yet you forge ahead for their benefit.
Our world needs more people like you.
