My Teacher Thich Nhat Hanh has said: "Because you are alive, everything is possible." A simple phrase perhaps but when it is experienced directly, intimately and beyond mental understanding... the possibility of life becomes open, liberating and free. I know that few of us are without our sorrows, our pains and stories of how we have suffered and yet we are wonderfully alive in this present moment.
An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind. Buddha
