SOL: Vessel

They will warn you of forbidden fruit and
Weave stories of venom, desire and lust.
Beware of what is offered from a chalice.
Still, make them drink – hold all your offerings
Slightly above their lips and
Watch how quickly the saints
Turn into savages.

MIND: Removal

The secret of Buddhism is to remove all ideas, all concepts, in order for the truth to have a chance to penetrate, to reveal itself.

// Thich Nhat Hanh

MIND: Fiery

Self-love is the foundation for your capacity to love the other person.
If you don’t take good care of yourself, if you are not happy, if you are not peaceful, you cannot make the other person happy.
You cannot help the other person; you cannot love.

Your capacity for loving another person depends entirely on your capacity for loving yourself, for taking care of yourself.

// Thich Nhat Hanh
