This was sent to me by a friend…. I am passing it along.


from The Art of Forgiveness, Lovingkindness, and Peace

by Jack Kornfield (Bantam, 2002):


Grasping too tightly

the things of this world,

attachments arise.


Holding only to how we want it to be,

Anger is born.


Not understanding the inevitability of change,

confusion clouds the mind.


“Meet this transient world

with neither grasping nor fear,

trust the unfolding of life,

and you will attain true serenity.”

Bhagavad Gita
