New Year quotes - 1

I like the time between Christmas and New Year – it’s a time I like to think a lot, to consider the past year and think how I want to live in the next one.

Over the next few days, I’m going to post a few quotes I find helpful, as part of that meditation. Here is the first:

"Peace requires us to surrender our illusions of control. We can love and care for others but we cannot possess our children, lovers, family, or friends. We can assist them, pray for them, and wish them well, yet in the end their happiness and suffering depend on their thoughts and actions, not on our wishes."
- Jack Kornfield
