    I enjoyed reading the proverbs. They all deal with unity. We are all a family with everybody in the world. We are all one and connected at a spiritual level. We feel love and compassion for all and want the best for all. With meditation you truly feel this connection.

    The true meaning of family, I learnt in Sahaja yoga, where different community, different race, and different country just becomes one. Loved the group pics of the yogi sisters. Brought back some of the precious memory of collective meditations and self realization events held together. May we all become a strong family of the divine one day.
