The Good News

By Thich Nhat Hanh

The good news

they do not print

The good news

we do print.

We have a special edition every moment

and we need you to read it.

The good news is that you are alive,

that the linden tree is still there,

standing firm in the harsh winter.

The good news is that you have wonderful eyes

to touch the blue sky.

The good news is that your child is there before you,

and your arms are available:

hugging is possible.

They only print what is wrong.

Look at each of our special editions.

We always offer the things that are not wrong.

We want you to benefit from them

and help protect them.

The dandelion is there by the sidewalk,

smiling its wonderful smile,

singing a song of eternity.

Listen. You have ears that can hear it.

Bow your head.

Listen to it.

Leave behind the world of sorrow,

of preoccupation,

and get free.

The latest good news is that you can do it.

What is your good news? Send me a note. I’d love to drink in the loveliness of your good news edition(s).

with grace

  • So happy you could make it to the Holiday Kickoff and sad that I could not. However Arete staff along with the volunteers and interns kicked butt.
