“This Present Little Instant”

“No heaven can come to us

unless our hearts find rest in it today.

Take heaven!

No peace lies in the future

which is not hidden in this present little instant.

Take peace!”

– Fra Giovanni Giocondo –


Nurture peace, cultivate loving-kindness, and carry the calm.
