The mind is everything.
What we think we become.”

For hate is never conquered by hate.
Hate is conquered by love.
This is an eternal law.

Who eats his breakfast,
Gazing at the morning-glories

O Snail,
Climb Mount Fuji
But slowly, slowly!

Walk and touch peace every moment.
Walk and touch happiness every moment.
Each step brings a fresh breeze.
Each step makes a flower bloom.
Kiss the Earth with your feet.
Bring the Earth your love and happiness.
The Earth will be safe
when we feel safe in ourselves.

- Thich Nhat Hahn

” Confused by thoughts,
we experience duality in life.
Unencumbered by ideas,
the enlightened see the one Reality.”

- Hui Neng
