Thick Nhat Hanh said, “We often think of peace as the absence of war, that if powerful countries would reduce their arsenals, we could have peace.  But if we look deeply into the weapons, we see our own minds, our own prejudices, fears and ignorances.  Even if we transported all the bombs to the moon, the roots of war, the reasons for bombs would still be there in our hearts and minds, and sooner or later we would make new bombs.  Seek to become more aware of what causes anger and separation and what overcomes them.  Root out anger and separation in your life by learning to live compassionately and mindfully –“.

I ask you, “What causes anger and separation in your life”?  Where is compassion lacking?”
