Taken from two treasures by Thich Nhat Hanh. The author presents eleven guidelines for daily life. All of them go against the stream of conditioned thought, but with regard to my little attempt at "vegan activism" I offer you three that made me stop and think:
- While acting in society, do not hope or pray not to have any difficulties. Without difficulties, arrogance can easily arise.
- While developing a plan, do not hope or pray to achieve success easily. With easy success, arrogance can easily arise.
- While speaking with others, do not hope or pray not to be disagreed with. Without disagreement, self-righteousness can flourish.
