Take my hand. We will walk.
Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh is a global spiritual leader, poet and peace activist, revered around the world for his pioneering teachings on mindfulness, global ethics and peace. He is 95 years old now and has been writing all of his adult life, so there are many poems, sayings, lectures and stories to chose from if you are looking for inspiration. This poem, Walking Meditation, says so much about spring, and so much about how to save the world. Be the change you want to see in the world. Take charge of your self and your life -- and your happiness.
Take my hand.
We will walk.
We will only walk.
We will enjoy our walk
without thinking of arriving anywhere.
Our walk is a peace walk.
Our walk is a happiness walk.
Then we learn
that there is no peace walk;
that peace is the walk;
that there is no happiness walk;
that happiness is the walk.
We walk for ourselves.
We walk for everyone
always hand in hand.
Walk and touch peace every moment.
Walk and touch happiness every moment.
Each step brings a fresh breeze.
Each step makes a flower bloom under our feet.
Kiss the Earth with your feet.
Print on Earth your love and happiness.
Earth will be safe
when we feel in us enough safety.
Peace and love to you in the week ahead, friends.
