The Flags Outside My Window

Every morning I look out my kitchen window at a set of Tibetan-Prayer-like flags as I put on the kettle for my pot of tea.

These six (6) flags have Kanji (Japanese Chinese-inspired characters) symbols and an English language inspirational quote.

This morning I thought I would share with you the text the “flags outside my windows” Β that I read to start my day. (Kanji character images from kanji-symbol.net).


HAPPINESS

When one’s spiritual needs are met by an untroubled inner life. Happiness comes when your work and words are of benefit to yourself and others.


LOVE

An inspired form of giving, love breathes life into the heart and brings grace to the soul.


COURAGE

Not the absence of fear or despair, but the strength to conquer them.


WISDOM

Knowledge, intuition and experience combine to guide us in thought and deed.


PEACE

To bring peace to the Earth, strive to make your own life peaceful.


TRANQUILITY

The peace that comes when energies are in harmony, relationships are in balance.

 

 

 


Looking at these flags is a grounding way for me to start each day.
