With the change in weather, the darkening days and the upcoming holidays, I’m feeling a little melancholy today. The words I chose to share this month resonate for me as I dwell in this mood, and I hope something here strikes you as well. Sending good wishes and healing thoughts to all my family, friends, neighbors and strangers, near and far, as we enter this season of thanksgiving and renewal.
“Fear is the mind’s reaction against the inherent generosity of the heart.”
“In difficult moments, if our mind is conditioned in the direction of someone in whom we have faith, then we have more energy to overcome life’s uncertainties.”
Thich Nhat Hahn
“…there is a continuum of cosmic consciousness, against which our individuality builds but accidental fences, and into which our several minds plunge as into a mother sea or reservoir.”
About suffering they were never wrong,
The Old Masters: how well they understood
Its human position; how it takes place
While someone else is eating or opening a window or just walking dully along.
