“By taking care of the present moment, we take good care of the future. Working for peace in the future is to work for peace in the present moment.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
Like the sun. Sometimes, you can’t see it for the clouds. You know – those cold winter days when the sky is dark and the rains come down forever, or weeks become months of white snow and gray skies – the sun is obscured, and you wonder if you will ever be warm again.
But the sun is still there. One day, the rain stops, the clouds part, the snow melts, and the sun… sure enough, it’s still there. Beautiful to behold, this warm, life-giving ball of fire in the sky. Our moods lift: how wonderful to see it again! Really, we knew it was there all along.
Peace is like that.
