Everyday Blessings-- January 19, 2012


Sacred Writing

“Hatreds do not ever cease in this world by hating, but by love; this is an eternal truth….Overcome anger by love, overcome evil by good. Overcome the miser by giving, overcome the liar by truth.”
Buddha (Dhammapada 1.5 and 17.3)
What is one blessing you have experienced this week?


In the days ahead,
May we learn the meaning of truth and nurture it.
May we discover our “better angels” and give them a place to live.
May we confront our “inner demons” and make peace with them. Amen.
