February 20th, 2015

[I]t’s crucial for you to find a way to practice peace. Even if you can only do it in a very restricted manner, it will help you survive. It will help you nourish hope. So I think it’s very important not to allow ourselves to be carried away by the feeling of despair. We should learn how to bring peace into our bodies and our minds, so we’re able to give right to thoughts of compassion, words of compassion and acts of compassion in our daily lives. That will inspire many people, and it will help them not be drowned in the ocean of despair. p. 110
