Eastern Words of Wisdom About Today's Global Problems

If we allow despair to take over then we have no strength left for anything at all. Acceptance can bring us peace, and with peace we can have force. ---Thich Nhat Hanh

I am on the same page as Thich Nhat Hanh, here, in my philosophy of presenting the world's problems and I hope that you are, too. Negativism and doomerism will get us nowhere and there is plenty of it in the headlines today. If we come at our global problems from a bigger view of time frame and acceptance, only then can we be proactive in contributing solutions. Also, never underestimate the power of positive thinking. ---KM
