Chinese Wisdom of the Week

"If every person made a habit of looking upon everything as flawless, then everything in the world would naturally become perfect.  If every person made a habit of making his heart expansive and tranquil, then evil and harmful feelings would naturally disappear." - From Tending the Roots of Wisdom, compiled by Hong Yingming.

Let this optimistic proverb be our guide and soak in the atmosphere, as Spring blooms to its fullest in the days ahead.  That’s it for this week!
