TO BE SAID LOOKING AT YOUR HAND # THICH NATH HAHN

Whose hand is this that has never died?
Who is it who was born in the past?
Who is it who will die in the future?

If you look deeply into the palm of your hand, you
will see your parents and all generations of your ancestors.
All of them are alive in this moment...
Previous generations, all the way back to single-celled beings,
are present in your hand at this moment.

-Thich Nath Hahn

    Thich Nhat Hanh/Quotes

    People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.
    Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today.
    We have to walk in a way that we only print peace and serenity on the Earth. Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.

# DESTINY IS LIKE A RIVER #


Image result for rivers











Some people's river goes straight and others are winding, but you can not change the shape of the river. However, when you flow, the river can branch of and you have to decide which direction you will go in. That is where free will comes in. Many people choose what seems like the calm stream, but it may lead to a waterfall; and rough water can sometimes lead a huge expanse of calmness. Author: Monk Cheong Wol

# LOVE IS THE ESSENCE OF THE SOUL CHRYSALIS # HAVE A HAPPY VALENTINES WEEKEND # TOUCHED BY LOVE #



Upon stumbling in the forest one day, I came across a spirit floating my way. "Who are you?" I quickly demanded. "I'm cupid!", the little fellow added. "Impossible!" I immediately shouted for cupid does not exist; there is no angel of love". "But do you not see my wings and arrows?" "Ha, easily manipulated by my own eyes". " But stranger, do you not believe in heavenly love, which makes the cruelest man innocent and pure as a dove". " In fairy tales I do not believe, only solid structures could I conceive". "Oh cried cupid, "how have a laxed in my part". And as I turned to walk away, I felt an arrow pinch my heart". ~ Author unkown ~

“Love is the bridge that leads from the I sense to the We, and there is a paradox about personal love. Love of another individual opens a new relation between the personality and the world. The lover responds in a new way to nature and may even write poetry. Love is affirmation; it motivates the yes responses and the sense of wider communication. Love casts out fear, and in the security of this togetherness we find contentment, courage. We no longer fear the age-old haunting questions: "Who am I?" "Why am I?" "Where am I going?" - and having cast out fear, we can be honest and charitable.”
~ Carson McCullers ~ The Mortgaged Heart: Selected Writing ~

IN THE NAME OF LOVE # BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR

You might get it! But at what cost and is it worth it?
Wishes can come true and sometimes in a different packages as you originally hoped for.
A thought is a very powerful tool, so use your brain wisely.
Next time when you wish for something, think about it some more. What are the consequences of your desires? Are they only effecting you, or others as well? Is it only for your benefit or for others as well? Try to always think about its cause and effect for all involved and observe its ripple effect... Try to keep in mind the bigger picture, not only in your circle of friends and family but our whole family of friends world wide. When you wish yourself well, also wish others well. Energy always follows intent......Pina

One must forge its own happiness in life, but not use others as the anvil.
