We should not try and create The past in Future
Which would be Our undoing in History
We have to Leave behind both Good and Bad of The Past
As in the understanding of what It has been and
Create our Present and Work towards Future
With Freedom and Compassion.

Blessed are the Man and Women
Who have grown beyond their Greed and
Have put an End to their hatred and
No longer nourish Illusions.
But they delight in the ways things are and
Keep their hearts open day and night.
They are like Trees planted near flowing rivers
Which bear fruit when they are ready
Their leaves will not Fall or Wither
Everything they do will Succeed.
