Sunday morning thoughts

From: Lori
Sent on: Sunday, October 17, 2010 8:22 AM
This morning I was reading Thich Nhat Hahn's commentaries on the Diamond Sutra. Here is one statement that jumped out at me -

"When we take refuge in something that is changing, we can never have peace. We need to abide in what is stable."

This statement seemed so simple and obvious, yet so different than what I often do - trying to find peace and comfort in all the things that are impermanent and just craving and clinging more.

Peace,

Lori
