Our repetitive suffering does not come from the uncomfortable situation of feeling our bodies and faces tense and as if we had a lump sitting in our stomach, that can physically hurt – this experience itself is not a problem.

Our repetitive suffering comes from what happens next, when we are spinning off , or getting swept away. It comes from rejecting our own energy when it comes in a form we don’t like. It comes from continually strengthening habits of grasping and aversion and distancing ourselves. In particular it comes from our internal conversations – our judgements and labels about what’s happening.

“To be in relationship to what you are going through, to hold it, and, in some sense to befriend it – that is where the healing or transformative power of the practice of mindfulness lies. When we can actually be where we are, not trying to find another state of mind, we discover deep internal resources we can make use of. Coming to terms with things as they are is my definition of healing.

Jon Kabat- Zinn (Shambhala magazine)

“Insight and love, they are the same. Insight brings love, and love is not possible without insight.”

“There is a deep tendency in us to seek pleasure and avoid suffering. In that way we aren’t aware of the danger of pleasure-seeking because there is ignorance in that. We aren’t aware of the danger of pleasure and do not know that suffering has its own goodness. It is good to experience some suffering, because when you suffer you develop compassion and understanding.”

( from: ” Love and Liberation”, by Thich Nhat Hanh.

Let’s start thinking about our next meeting: “Spring and Nature”


Think about these questions:


What can we learn from nature observing the different seasons of the year?

How can we become wiser being in contact with nature?

What messages does nature send us?

Is there any lesson you have learnt recently based on the wisdom of nature?

What parts of our lives that are dried or dead have to be reborn and which of them have to be discarded in order to bring new changes, new ideas, a real transformation? 


Let’s share different point of views and experiences… in a very warm environment!

Welcome spring! Welcome love!

Let’s celebrate with this beautiful poem by William Shakespeare

Love Is Not Love Which Alters

Let me not to the marriage of true mindsAdmit impediments. Love is not love

Which alters when it alteration finds,

Or bends with the remover to remove:

O no! it is an ever-fixed mark

That looks on tempests and is never shaken;

It is the star to every wandering bark,

Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.

Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks

Within his bending sickle’s compass come:

Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,

But bears it out even to the edge of doom.

If this be error and upon me proved,

I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

William Shakespeare  

(1564 – 1616)
