Yesterday was one of those days. It started out bad and seemed to get worse. It wasn’t anything terrible, more a mood or funk inspired by the weather and work deadlines and family schedules. I tried to begin the day by lighting my prayer candle and sitting in silence, but all I felt was emptiness. So I turned to work.
“Thich Nhat Hanh is more my brother than many who are nearer to me in race and nationality, because he and I see things in exactly the same way.”
Thich Nhat Hanh is an internationally known Zen master, whom I have had the privilege of hearing during an address at Riverside Church in New York City years ago and whose books I have read numerous times.
“Remember: Emptiness is possibility!”
