Thich Nhat Hanh teaches deep-listening, to speak lovingly and with compassion.
This journey of being human is certainly challenging and choosing to live in peace and being mindful and respectful of others' spiritual, physical and emotional needs is what leads me to trust in authentic living, equanimity and Sangha-building.
This is where we have the opportunity to cultivate loving-kindness and choose to bring our mind back to our body.
"To find peace, sometimes you have to be willing to lose connection with people, places, and things that create all the noise in your life." anonymous
These words are tough, not my words, but surrounding ourselves with a likeminded and caring community seems to be vital in order for us to live this life well and as it is intended to be.
May we all choose loving-speech and compassionate listening as our guide as we flow like a river throughout 2020.
Love and Light
