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
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.
