La Mo 'Praying'
I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope, for hope would be hope for the wrong thing. And wait without love, for love would be love of the wrong thing. Yet there is faith. But the faith and the hope and the love, are all in the waiting. And the darkness shall be the light and the stillness the dancing.
~ T.S. Elliot
'meditation is not to control your thoughts... but to ensure that your thoughts do not control you.'
i don't know who first said this but it seems worth repeating..
Very beautiful, thank you Rosmarie.

"I add my breath to your breath that our days may be long on the Earth, that the days of our people may be long, that we shall be as one person, that we may finish our road together.”
— Prayer from the Laguna Pueblo people.
Sometime go outside and sit, In the evening at sunset, When there’s a slight breeze that touches your body, And makes the leaves and the trees move gently. You’re not trying to do anything, really. You’re simply allowing yourself to be, Very open from deep within, Without holding onto anything whatsoever. Don’t bring something back from the past, from a memory. Don’t plan that something should happen. Don’t hold onto anything in the present. Nothing you perceive needs to be nailed down. Simply let experience take place, very freely, So that your empty, open heart Is suffused with the tenderness of true compassion. ~ Tsoknyi Rinpoche
"Life on earth is a whole, yet it expresses itself in unique time-bound bodies, microscopic or visible, plant or animal, extinct or living. So there can be no one place to be. There can be no one way to be, no one way to practice, no one way to learn, no one way to love, no one way to grow or to heal, no one way to live, no one way to feel, no one thing to know or be known. The particulars count."
~ Jon Kabat-Zinn, ‘Wherever You Go, There You Are: Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life’
"These are nuances of the human tragedy, nuances of the tragicomic situation in which we find ourselves. "Don't bring things to a painful point" is again saying, "Don't humiliate people." We do all of these things because we feel pain, because we feel hurt and separate. Instead of first making friends with what we're feeling and then, second, trying to communicate, we have all these ways of keeping the "us and them" story solid and strong. That's what causes all the pain on this earth, including the fact that the ecosystem is turned upside down. All of that comes from people not making friends with themselves and never being willing to communicate with the one they consider to be the troublemaker. That's how we stay caught in this battleground, this war zone."
~ Pema Chodron
We can all learn to conquer hatred through love by drawing on the power released through the practice of meditation to throw all our weight, all our energy, and all our will on the side of what is patient, forgiving, and selfless in ourselves and others.
