“A Thought Experiment”
If you believe that plucking a flower 
will trouble a star, 
You will probably agree that 
the smallest act of kindness 
makes the universe smile.
And if you realize that a butterfly 
can change the course of a storm 
by changing the direction of its flight, 
It should be no surprise 
that a moment of joyous wonder 
may change the world. 
I have learned that three breaths 
can move a mountain and everything 
depends on everything else… 
Which is to say that no problem is so great 
that it can’t be overcome by the smallest 
change in the way we see it.
