Reader comment on Barbara Brown Taylor's passage ...

Pronounce a Silent Blessing

 This is very good. I have had that same thought: there is no greater miracle than simply wishing others real peace and real happiness. When I do this, I realize that there are so many other beings, on this Earth and elsewhere in the Universe, doing the same for me.

However... one who is really aware will realize, while sitting in that airport, that the act of flying itself does so much harm to this Earth and the beings on it. That person will realize that he or she actually prefers not to fly for this reason. It's not only possible to live with far less fossil fuel... it can make you happier.
