The following excerpts were taken from our meditation books 'The Song of Life' edited by Helen Exley and 'The Saints little Book of Wisdom' compiled by Andrea Kirk Assaf. We hope these bring you small moments of peace within this season.

"The man who preserves his selfhood ever calm and unshaken by the storms of existence--not a leaf as it were, astir to the trees; not a ripple upon the surface of a shining pool--his, in the mind of the unlettered sage, is the ideal attitude and conduct of life."

Ohiyesa (1858-1939) Santee Souix

The Zen of You and Me
Author: Diane Musho Hamilton

The people who get under your skin the most can in fact be your greatest teachers. It’s not a matter of overlooking differences, as is often taught, but of regarding those difficult aspects of the relationship with curiosity and compassion—for those very differences offer a path to profound connection. Diane Hamilton’s practical, reality-based guide to living harmoniously with even your most irritating fellow humans—spouses, partners, colleagues, parents, children—shows that “getting along” is really a matter of discovering that our differences are nothing other than an expression of our even deeper shared unity.
