—Angela Walker.

—Brian Tracy.

"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite."

Power On .

Each day we all need to recharge our spiritual battery, otherwise the light of our consciousness becomes dim, thoughts become fuzzy, and decisions are impregnated with doubt.

Power is available inside and outside.

Inside us we have a spiritual centre, at the core of our consciousness, pure radiant spiritual light.

This is what we are.

However it is now blocked by our attachments, the record of all our life experiences and many learned beliefs and perceptions.

Outside us we have the sun of spirit, the source, invisible to our physical eyes but only one second away when we are able to quieten and focus our mind.

Meditation connects us to both sources of power - that's why meditation is the way to access the real vitamins and the minerals that spirit craves.

The vitamin of pure love and the minerals of truth and wisdom.

Take time to empower yourself today.

Sit quietly and connect your mind to each source and allow yourself to recharge and renew.

The Sound of One Hand

The master of Kennin temple was Mokurai, Silent Thunder. He had a little prot g named Toyo who was only twelve years old. Toyo saw the older disciples visit the master's room each morning and evening to receive instruction in sanzen or personal guidence in which they were given koans to stop mind-wandering.

Toyo wished to do sanzen also.

"Wait a while," said Mokurai. "You are too young."

But the child insisted, so the teacher finally consented.

In the evening little Toyo went at the proper time to the threshold of Mokurai's sanzen room. He struck the gong to announce his presence, bowed respectfully three times outside the door, and went to sit before the master in respectful silence.

"You can hear the sound of two hands when they clap together," said Mokurai. "Now show me the sound of one hand."

Toyo bowed and went to his room to consider this problem. From his window he could hear the music of the geishas. "Ah, I have it!" he proclaimed.

The next evening, when his teacher asked him to illustrate the sound of one hand, Toyo began to play the music of the geishas.

"No, no," said Mokurai. "That will never do. That is not the sound of one hand. You've not got it at all."

Thinking that such music might interrupt, Toyo moved his abode to a quiet placeHe meditated again. "What can the sound of one hand be?" He happened to hear some water dripping. "I have it," imagined Toyo.

When he next appeared before his teacher, he imitated dripping water.

"What is that?" asked Mokurai. "That is the sound of dripping water, but not the sound of one hand. Try again."

In vain Toyo meditated to hear the sound of one hand. He heard the sighing of the wind. But the sound was rejected.

He heard the cry of an owl. This was also refused.

The sound of one hand was not the locusts.

For more than ten times Toyo visited Mokurai with different sounds. All were wrong. For almost a year he pondered what the sound of one hand might be.

At last Toyo entered true meditation and transcended all sounds. "I could collect no more," he explained later, "so I reached the soundless sound."

Toyo had realized the sound of one hand.

Insight from Dan Millman
Do we have to quiet our minds, think positive thoughts, and feel the right emotions in order to live well? I suggest another way—the peaceful warrior’s way of action. We can cease our struggle to fix our insides, accept our thoughts and feelings (positive or negative), while doing constructive, purposeful action. We can behave with courage and kindness, whether or not we feel that way. We can turn what we know into what we do. Here. Now. We are, each and all, peaceful warriors in training, learning to live with a peaceful heart and a warrior spirit.
