The images below, by Kathy,
(more images on today’s  Pocket Perspectives post)
encouraging all of us to shift into:
strong  and compassionate motivation and intention,
to stand up, speak up and be heard,
leading to positive, compassionate action

“shift”

“shift”…both an invitation and a challenge,
to help and support others because…
“the suffering of one person is the suffering of humanity,
the happiness of one person is the happiness of humanity”
“common humanity”…we’re all in this together,
to do whatever we are each able to do
to help alleviate suffering and to support happiness in all beings
“shift”
an invitation and a challenge
