  8. Oneness by Thich Nhat Hanh

    The moment I die,
    I will try to come back to you
    as quickly as possible.
    I promise it will not take long.
    Isn’t it true
    I am already with you,
    as I die each moment?
    I come back to you
    in every moment.
    Just look,
    Feel my presence.
    If you want to cry,
    please cry.
    And know
    that I will cry with you.
    The tears you shed
    will heal us both.
    Your tears and mine.
    The earth I tread this morning
    transcends history.
    Spring and Winter are both present in the moment.
    The young leaf and dead leaf are really one.
    My feet touch deathlessness,
    and my feet are yours.
    Walk with me now.
    Let us enter the dimension of oneness
    and see the cherry tree blossom in Winter.
    Why should we talk about death?
    I don’t need to die
    to be back with you.

  9. I am profoundly saddened by the loss of Peggy. With husband Donald, we were childhood friends. I always admired both and will remember them fondly. Peggy had a heavy heart for all. Please convey my sympathy to the family.
