Unless you are able to smile, the world will not have peace

“If you turn the sorrow on, you are the sorrow. If you turn the smile on, you are the smile, and so on. Don’t let one channel dominate you all the time. You have the seed of everything in you, therefore we have to seize the situation in our hands. To recover our own sovereignty.”- Thich Nhat Hanh through Narelle Hanratty

I was actually pondering this earlier on this morning:

This deep-seated Sorrow every so often dominating and totally taking over me. Quashing me really. No matter how much one smiles in those fateful moments, it helps not.

YET!…

It takes hard work, courage, skill and immense determination to seize the situation in your hands.To recover your sovereignty is to lucidly see through, disidentify from, and invalidate this ominous human legacy…

 

 

I strongly recommend Narelle´s initial post

I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.
