May 10, 2014 first roses of summer 006

You know quite well,

deep within you,

that there is only a single magic,

a single power, a single salvation…

and that is called loving.


Well, then, love your suffering.


Do not resist it,

do not flee from it.

It is your aversion that hurts,

nothing else.


Herman Hesse
