Deepest gratitude for the tranquillity, kindness and embodiment of peace that you shared with us. The light of your wisdom continues to shine, steady and true.
One of my favourite quotes from Thich Nhat Hanh.
“When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you don’t blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it is not
doing well. It may need fertilizer, or more water, or less sun. You never blame the lettuce. Yet if we have problems with our friends or family, we blame the other person. But if we know how to take care of them, they will grow well, like the lettuce. Blaming has no positive effect at all, nor does trying to persuade using reason and argument. That is my experience. No blame, no reasoning, no argument, just understanding. If you understand, and you show that you understand, you can love, and the situation will change”
Thich Nhat Hanh, 11.10.1926–22.01.2022
