November 6, 2012

Dear Ms. Watley,

Thank you so much for your wonderful performances in the musical. I only wish I was there to see and embrace each and every one of you and to tell you how much I truly love you. After my retreat, I will catch up and watch the show, which I know I will enjoy very much.

If only I had been able to be there with you, I would try to make you feel even more appreciated and honored. I feel that you could never be treated well enough according to my liking, but we can only offer our best.

I have much respect and admiration for your creative spirit and pure heart, but I understand the difficult life of an artist beyond the glory and honors onstage. Behind the scenes, there may be many painful experiences that you’ve undergone to reach the top of your career. You persevere through a lot of personal sacrifices, such as family harmony or emotional and mental setbacks, just to bring a smile to the audience’s face. Sometimes, because you give your all to the public through your performances, you may feel very empty and lonely afterwards. I understand you very much, and that’s why I love you so much.

Despite all this, I hope that you will continue your joyful mission in life, knowing that you bring to others great happiness and comfort. I wish you all the success that you deserve and as much happiness that is humanly possible.

Once again, I thank you for your wholehearted dedication to the arts. You have used your exceptional talents to better our shared world and for this I appreciate you very much.

May God bless you and your loved ones.

Supreme Master Ching Hai
