“Our ‘debts’ are the mistakes
we’ve made towards our loved ones.
We’ve said something,
we’ve done something,
or we’ve thought something.
Our words, our actions,
our thoughts have made the other person suffer,
and these are the heavy debts we owe.
How can we live in such a way
that every day we can forgive others?
We forgive because they do not have enough mindfulness,
enough understanding, enough love,
and they still have wrong perceptions.
So we have to be able to let go of all of our resentment,
because we also have made mistakes
of the same nature towards other people.”
Thich Nhat Hanh, from The Energy of Prayer:
How to Deepen Your Spiritual Practice
The earth formed
as part of us
and out of it
the breath poured
and between it
came all that who are
and all whoever will be.
on which the strong stand.
parting seas of impossibility.
the dry land
the endless soil of
a single moment.
