Find The One That Makes Your Heart Smile
Thich Nhat Hanh
"If we want to be safe, we have to build safety. What do we build it with? We can't use fortresses, bombs, or airplanes. The United States of America has a very powerful military and the most advanced weapons in the world, but the American people don't feel safe; they feel very afraid and vulnerable. There must be some other kind of practice to take refuge in so that we can really feel safe. We have to learn to build safety with our in-breath and our out-breath. We have to learn to build safety with our steps, with our way of acting and re-acting, with our words and our efforts to build communication." More by Thich Nhat Hanh

Why
Abstain from love
When like the beautiful snow goose
Someday your soul
Will leave this summer
Camp?

Why
Abstain from happiness
When like a skilled lion
Your heart is
Nearing

And Will someday see
The divine prey is
Always
Near!

day; for the leaping greenly

and a blue true dream of sky;
and for everything
which is natural, which is
infinite, which is yes.

Sometimes I go about pitying myself
And all the while
I am being carried across the sky
By beautiful clouds.
