Gentleness is strength under control

Dear Children,

The greatest of all happiness is to be at peace with one's immediate relations, those with whom one must live every day in the year. When people try to handle the extremely complicated machinery of human feelings without any training whatsoever, the consequent results are often disastrous. Very few persons realize that most of our happiness lies in the art of understanding the law of human behavior. That is why so many people are often "in hot water" with their friends, and, worse yet, at constant war with their own best beloved ones at home. There is no more liberating action than sincerely to give people kindness in return for unkindness.

One must never give up the hope of becoming better. It Takes Strength To Be Gentle. Gentleness is strength, but it’s strength under control. Gentleness succeeds better than violence.

With Love,
- Amma -Naana
