Encouraging note from a CCO staff member-
“This morning while walking 5 city blocks in Uptown I shook hands with 5 different fellas. All five of them were once deemed “chronically homeless” but now they are permanently housed. I am left smiling because we were able to play a role in their success!”
Heart and Mind
When the mind conquers our heart,
without loosing its compassion.
The gentle mother earth teems with flowers,
each blooms to their fullest beauties.
And the whole world wakes up
with oneness and peace.
But when the heart captivates the mind,
our little life boat floats to the rhythm of our heart.
Unseen and unknown, it rises and falls.
It floats on its fantasy,
yet in this sea of happiness
there is still waves of sorrow and suspicion.
