Places of Refuge
When our hearts are unencumbered by fear and doubt,
Love and generosity flow through us with grace and ease.
We can see clearly and make wise decisions.
We can offer our gifts for the benefit of all.
This, the Torah teaches, is a matter of life and death.
Make a commitment, the Torah calls,
To stop, reflect, to be in beauty,
To create in your life moments of peace
And places of refuge.
Let these practices help you return
To a heart that is generous and kind.
