Teachings on love by Thich Nhat Hanh

May I be peaceful, happy and light in body and spirit. 

May I be free from anger, afflictions, fear and anxiety. 

May I learn to look at myself with the eyes of understanding and love. 
May I be able to recognise and touch the seeds of joy and happiness in myself. 

May I learn how to identify and see the sources of anger, craving and delusion in myself. 

May I know how to nourish the seeds of joy in myself every day. 

May I be able to live fresh, solid and free. 

May I be free from attachment and aversion, but not be indifferent. 

Make every yesterday a memory of happiness

This is an ancient Sanskrit poem …the wisdom echoes down over the centuries…..

A Life Well Lived

Look well to this day
For it is life
The very best of life.
In its brief course lie all
The realities and truths of existence,
The joy of growth, the splendour of action,
The glory of power.
For yesterday is but a memory.
And tomorrow is only a vision.
But today well lived
Makes every yesterday a memory of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore to this day.
