Reflection for today…The Roots of Peace -Thich Nhat Hanh

10 Jan

“Our capacity to make peace with another person and with the world depends very much on our capacity to make peace with ourselves.”

How can you make peace with yourself?
How can you make peace with others?

    Thay is the most beautiful monk.
    Peaceful Mind, Peaceful World, isn’t it.

      Yes, Thay is the most beautiful monk.
      I was just watching an interview with him and Oprah last night.
      He is so peaceful, compassionate and wise.
      I believe he is regarded as a bodhisattva by many 😉

      I am starting to think that if people had peaceful minds then we would have a more peaceful world.
      Perhaps meditation is the key?

      Love & Light…

        Maybe yes, blessings and meditation do change our minds. Blessings change our minds from a negative state to a positive one. Meditation cuts through the daily crap to maintain that higher vibration. And for sure, as more people believe in peace, the more it will happen.
        * I think Thay’s a Bodhisattva.

        Jas Baku…
        Hello friend.

        Would you say that blessings are like affirmations or mantras?
        Or are they more like visualizations?

        Meditation seems to be like a mental & spiritual cleansing/detox {like you said so brilliantly in a recent post…”like cleaning your computer’s cache”}.

        I also think that the more people believe in peace, the more likely they are to work towards it 😉

        Could you please speak more about maintaining a higher vibration?
        I would love to hear more.

        Love & Light…
