Hello,It's Sunita here.
"I am a continuation, like the rain is a continuation of the cloud."
Thich Nhat Hahn
I end by reposting my blog of June 20, 2020 in honor of Thay.
With love, and an awareness that we are all one,
Until next time,
We are travelling in times of great difficulty and pain. I once again, turn to poetry for comfort and guidance. Since there is so much original content out there right now by incredibly talented and compassionate people, I feel there is no need for me to add to it.
So, instead today, I share with you a poem by Thich Nhat Hanh that takes me to a place of mercy as I try to move away from anger, frustration and feelings of helplessness in the face of the gigantic problems we face in our world.
RecommendationPromise me,promise me this day,promise now,while the sun is overheadexactly at the zenith,promise me:Even as theystrike you downwith a mountain of hatred and violence:even as they step on you and crush youremember brother, remember.man is not our enemy.The only thing worthy of you is compassion-invincible, limitless, unconditional.Hatred will never let you facethe beast in man.One day, when you face this beast alone with your courage intact, your eyes kind,untroubled(even as no one sees them),out of your smilewill bloom a flower.And those who love youwill behold youacross ten thousand worlds of birth and dying.Alone again,I will go on with bent head,knowing that love has become eternal.On the long, rough roadthe sun and moon will continue to shine.Wishing you a week full of invincible, limitless and unconditional compassion,Love,Sunita#selfloveselfcarefirst #poetry #thichnhathanh #thay #recommendation #alone again #compassion #love #mercy #courage #selflove #selfcare #mindfulness #meditation #eternal #smile #eternal #connected #we are one #interconnectedPhotograph credit- "Thay Walking" by Paul Davis
