from the world below

the way a crow

shook down on my

the dust of snow

from a hemlock tree.

has given my heart

a change of mood

and changed some part

of a day I had rued.

~Robert Frost

I can’t forget how the moon highlights the way….

inquiry for today~ what do you really believe?

when we live with a the melancholy heart

We have a great, habitual fear inside ourselves.

We’re afraid of many things — of our own death, of losing our loved ones, of change, of being alone.

The practice of mindfulness helps us to touch non-fear.

It’s only here and now that we can experience total relief, total happiness…

In the practice of Buddhism, we see that all mental formations —

including compassion, love, fear, sorrow, and despair — are organic in nature.

We don’t need to be afraid of any of them, because transformation is always possible.

~Thich Nhat Hanh
