awakened mind

When I am at my office, I like to start my day by "randomly" picking a card from The Energy of Prayer gift box by thich nhat hanh. This is a beautiful little box containing  poems, chants, meditations and sayings by the renowned Vietnamese zen monk, poet, scholar, and human rights activist.  Once selected, I read with awareness and let the words melt into my soul. This is the one for today.

The Awakened Mind is likethe full moon that soars across theimmense sky. When the river of mindis truly calm, the moon is reflectedperfectly upon the surfaceof the deep waters.

May the path grow brighter.May the wind and rain be favorable.May every country be at peace.May people be free and equal.May the refreshing breeze ofcompassion enter into thisworld of heat, allowingthe sun of wisdomto shine clearly.

Peace & Love,Dana
