Sitting meditation is a practice that helps us heal and transform. It helps us to be whole, and to look deeply into ourselves and into what’s around us in order to see clearly what is really there. Looking deeply, we light up the recesses of our mind and look into the heart of thing in order to see their true nature.
Thich Nhat Hanh
Reading the words of Thich Nhat Hanh is like a soothing salve and has the same effect on me as being on or near water. As I read the passage above, it occurred to me there is no better time than now to begin the process of healing and transformation in an effort to close the divides we are experiencing in the United States.
I am not sure how to play a role, but I am committed to trying to see what is really there and being responsive in a positive way. Won’t you join me?
