“Internal knots are sown and nourished by our lack of mindfulness in daily life.
The ten chief internal knots are:
greed; hatred; ignorance; conceit;
suspicion; attachment to the body as the self;
extreme views and prejudices;
clinging to rites and rituals;
our craving for immortality;
and our craving to keep everything just as it is.
Our health and our happiness depend
to a great extent on our ability
to transform these ten fetters.”
Thich Nhat Hanh, The Energy of Prayer:
How to Deepen Your Spiritual Practice
“Lift me up, mommy,” the Soul sings,
“So I can see. Hold me So that I can reach.
Catch me, So that I don’t fall!
Give me wings and let me play with Freedom!”
Creation laughs, wiping the centuries of lives lived
and those yet to be born from the soul’s eyes,
“There is a universe inside you –
old as creation, but always being brand new.
There is nothing you cannot do, or be.”
