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. 

Nelson Mandela: The Difference Is One

You can change the world. Yes, YOU. The difference is always one. One person who chooses a different way, to act with integrity, to follow their heart and live their life and live their purpose. One person can change the world.

Nelson Mandela fought for freedom and respect for his people. That included violence in the early days, but prison changed him. Sometimes the things we think are are the end of the world are the doors to miracles. For he then chose understanding, to live and walk in peace, and to forgive; the game changer. He chose to talk and walk with respect for “the other”, to listen and really understand. He learned to walk to a different beat from many of his former colleagues, and in being true to himself, he changed many hearts, a country, a world for the better. He walked what he talked and he gave us all hope. He will always be one of my heroes. May he sleep well.
