Here is an extract from a discourse from David Steindl-Rast:
“ Look at the faces of people whom you meet.
Each one has an incredible story behind their face,
A story that you could never fully fathom.
Not only their own story, but the story of their ancestors,
We all go back so far.
And in this present moment, on this day,
All the people you meet, all that life from generations
And from so many places all over the world,
Flows together and meets you hereLike a life-giving water, if you only open your heart and drink.”

{Steindl-Rast was born and raised in Vienna, Austria. He received his MA degree from the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts and his Ph.D. in experimental psychology from the University of Vienna (1952).}
