I'm reading a book called "It's Hard to Make a Difference When You Can't Find Your Keys." In it, is this quote from Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, a Tibetan Buddhist teacher. I thought I'd share it. Kathy Beal's word for the year is sacred so I thought of her:
"The attitude of sacredness towards your environment will bring drala (magic). You may live in a dirt hut with no floor and only one window, but if you regard that space as sacred, if you care for it with your heart and mind, then it will be a palace."
