oh delicate hearts
find beauty in brokenness
tender whispering

I have been moved by the journey of Michael Stone, a Buddhist teacher who recently died. I never met him, but from what I have read, he was a kind, giving, loving and gentle man who supported many on their spiritual journeys.

Unbeknownst to many, Michael lived with bipolar disorder. Because of the stigma attached to mental illness, he kept it from the public.

A good reminder that we are all human, and also that we have no idea what people might be struggling with. We are all broken in some way – and there is beauty in that brokenness. May we be kind and tender with each other…

Lion’s Roar put out an official statement re Michael’s death. You can read it here   and there are many videos available on-line if you are interested in listening to his offerings.
