Out of the Fire 11:11 1/11/11

Out of the fire our future will be written and all who have forgotten or who have been in fear to stand up for what is good and right about us; like ethics, humanity, collective consciousness and the truth that all beings should have the right to pursue Happiness. These people who ignore the responsibility to think in… Terms of the next 7 generations into the future rather than a 24 hour news cycle or a business quarter will have missed the opportunity to suck all the juice out of the fruit of living and being here now! We are at a crossroad and I hope we carefully consider the road not taken!

“And once we have the condition of peace and joy in us, we can afford to be in any situation. Even in the situation of hell, we will be able to contribute our peace and serenity. The most important thing is for each of us to have some freedom in our heart, some stability in our heart, some peace in our heart. Only then will we be able to relieve the suffering around us.”
Thich Nhat Hanh

How Fragile We Are!

A sunrise does not last all morning
All things pass
a cloudburst does not last all day
All things pass
Nor a sunset,
All things pass

What always changes?
Earth, sky, thunder, mountain, water…
Wind, fire, lake

These change
And if these do not last

Do man’s visions last?
Do man’s illusions?

Take things as they come
All things pass

Lao Tsu (Chinese, 604-531 B.C.)



And once we have the condition of peace and joy in us, we can afford to be in any situation. Even in the situation of hell, we will be able to contribute our peace and serenity. The most important thing is for each of us to have some freedom in our heart, some stability in our heart, some peace in our heart. Only then will we be able to relieve the suffering around us.
