May I be peaceful with whatever is happening

“No other weapon has the power of forbearance. It should not be used only as an individual instrument. It has to be experienced collectively also. That is the reason why the scripture has commended collective forbearance at the very outset of the spiritual quest. What is its inner meaning? “

Sri Sathya Sai Baba

“In Buddhism patience has three essential aspects: gentle forbearance, calm endurance of hardship, and acceptance of the truth.”

  1. Hello Rita, I do appreciate the forbearance. It is helpful to have words to explain what it is that I want. The chaos is at so many levels and to acknowledge the reality and to be with it as it is with as much calm presence as I can muster is a desire. May it be accompanied by an ongoing hope and compassion for all.

    Thank you, Therese
