Take My Hand, We Will Walk

Take my hand.
We will walk.
We will only walk.
We will enjoy our walk,
without thinking of arriving anywhere.
Walk peacefully.
Walk happily.
Our walk is a peace walk.
Our walk is a happiness walk.

– Thich Nhat Hanh, Linji School, Thiền Buddhism.

  1. Interesting post. Beautiful poetry. I’m glad I KNOW with Whom I walk and where we are going. Even if we are not outside still He is with me, In me, beside me, everywhere around me. How blessed is the journey. Thank you for the post.
