All Beings Quake with Fear


I just got back from vacation and feel like I haven’t blogged in forever! I have much to share, but I’m tired from my travels and I have to go grocery shopping and do laundry (lots of laundry!) and, and, and… So instead of writing a post today, I’m sharing a fab quote I read on my newest blogger buddy, Lucie’s, blog. Here’s the quote:

All beings tremble before violence.  All fear death, all love life. See yourself in others. Then whom can you hurt? What harm can you do?
― Buddha

I also want to say THANK YOU to Christian from An Average Vegan Dude for posting Kidnapped – Julia’s Story on Vegan on Facebook. If you haven’t checked out An Average Vegan Dude or Vegan on Facebook, I’d encourage you to do so. They’re both awesome resources!

        I totally understand how you feel, I have been the same as I had my exams at the beginning of January so was in a bit of a revision cocoon! Trying to pull everything back together now. Have a lovely day too 😀

  19. Welcome back, Celeste and remember…Breathe and relax! I haven’t blogged in forever either since the holidays and New Year’s, you’re not the only one! I hope you had a wonderful vacation and a productive week! -Rika

    • I think you’re right Rika, the blogging world has seemed less busy lately. In your honor, I’m taking a deep breath right now.

      Ah, that felt great!! I’m actually working on being more mindful this year. I’ve started meditating everyday and it helps a lot. Thinking of you chica! Celeste 🙂
