Infinite Future

A child raised by a good parent

will grow up able to be a congenial and loving adult.

The conduct of one parent with such a heart

reveals itself in this way

through ongoing generations.

Parents’ lives are not confined

to themselves alone.

They are the starting point

of life that unfolds

into the infinite future.

~Shundo Aoyama

(1933-pres., Japanese Soto Zen Buddhist nun and abbess)
