To paraphrase Thich Nhat Hanh, your mind can go in a million directions, if you let it. IF you let it. (It's so easy to let it). But we can choose to walk in peace. And if we have a choice, why not make it? Why not walk that path when it's already there for the walking? The wind might blow, might gale, yes, but the flower still blooms.
I choose the flower.
