"Imagine yourself as a pebble which has been thrown into a river. The pebble sinks through the water effortlessly. Detached from everything, it falls by the shortest distance possible, finally reaching the bottom, the point of perfect rest. You are like a pebble which has let itself fall into the river, letting go of everything. At the center of your being is your breath."      


                    —Thich Nhat Hahn

               September morning—

"As I walked out the door toward the gate 

that would lead to my freedom, I knew if 

I didn't leave my bitterness and hatred 

behind, I'd still be in prison."


—Nelson Mandela

      If you have ever been wounded, but 

         never recovered from it, you will 

               forever be controlled by it.

        will always ask for it in the most 

                     unloving ways."

      True reflection begins with honest 

      self-reflection -- especially, when 

      reflecting on other people's actions. 

      Understanding the behavior of others 

      only begins when we penetrate the 

      surface of our own behavior.

     "When you do things from your soul, 

           you feel a river moving in you, 

                            a joy."


                          —Rumi
