Frightened by Your Own Ghost?

ghost on 9th st.“If you tarnish your perceptions by holding on to suffering that isn’t really there, you create even greater misunderstanding.

One-sided perceptions like these create our world of suffering.

We are like an artist who is frightened by his own drawing of a ghost.

Our creation becomes real to us and even haunts us.”

-Thich Nhat Hanh, from “Fragrant Palm Leaves” (a collection of his writings from the 1960’s)

Who are you? What do you stand for?

Feel your feet gently but firmly on the ground. You are already everything, alpha and omega, a portal to the universe.

Alpha and omega are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet.
