Lotus

Lotus is my favourite flower.
„The Lotus Flower grows in the deep mud, far away from the sun. But, sooner or later, the Lotus reaches the light becoming the most beautiful flower ever.“

Peace

“Peace is not an idea. Peace is not a political movement, not a theory or a dogma. Peace is a way of life: living mindfully in the present moment. It is not a question of politics but of actions. It is not a matter of improving a political system or even taking care of homeless people alone. These are valuable but will not alone end war and suffering. We must simply stop the endless wars that rage within. Imagine, if everyone stopped the war in themselves – there would be no seeds from which war could grow.”

Claude Anshin Thomas (*1947), American Zen Buddhist monk, Vietnam War veteran, and author of Hell’s Gate: A Soldier’s Journey
