ichinen ［一念］ (; Chin i-nien): A single moment of life, one instant of thought, or the mind or life at a single moment. Also, life-moment, thought-moment, or simply a single moment or instant.
You can forge the path to a fulfilling and enjoyable life if you have the depth of presence to regard everything as a source for creating knowledge, happiness and value. Conversely, if you see everything only in a negative or pessimistic light, your life will gradually but inevitably be plunged into darkness. Buddhism teaches the subtle principle of ichinen and, moreover, the power of faith in our daily steps towards understanding.
Peace and Love, Jim
