    Rinpoche, thank you for a poem that reminds me how “lightly” and “effortlessly” being positive during a difficult day can feel. I’m turning to this poem often as a kind of song not just for the year but for how to view my days during these very difficult kaliyuga times. Dearest Rinpoche, would you please comment on “action bodhichitta” and the teaching, “The longest journey is from the head to the heart.”

    Thank you. Jackie Roemer
