Maybe the subject line should be “Paws a Moment.” Either way, I was rushing through yet another crazy day, when I spotted Stormy and Wiley, now year-old sibs I worked to catch and rescued last spring, taking an afternoon snooze together in my reading chair. I decided that I needed to stop my frantic pace and just appreciate them.
I am reading Karen Armstrong’s Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life and found this wonderful quote by Albert Einstein:
“To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself to us as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their most primitive forms — this knowledge, this feeling is at the center of all true religiousness. In this sense, and in this sense only, I belong to the ranks of the devoutly religious men.”
