Words of Wisdom...

“Even though life is hard, even though it is sometimes difficult to smile, we have to try. Just as when we wish each other “Good morning,” it must be a real “Good morning.” Recently, one friend asked me, “How can I force myself to smile when I am filled with sorry? It isn’t natural. I told her she must be able to smile to her sorrow, because we are more than our sorrow. A human being is like a television set with millions of channels. If we turn the Buddha on, we are the Buddha. If we turn  sorry on, we are sorry. If we turn a smile on, we really are the smile. We can’t let just one channel dominate us.”

The above passage was abstracted from the book, “Being Peace,” by Thich Nhat Hanh

I very much recommend this little book because it is a gem, full of wisdom.



When your focus is directed in a positive manner you are much more likely to achieve your goals and realize your dreams.
