Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “While washing the dishes, you might be thinking about the tea afterwards, and so try to get them out of the way as quickly as possible in order to sit and drink tea. But that means that you are incapable of living during the time you are washing the dishes.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Fear is based on ignorance. Lack of understanding is also a primary cause of anger.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “True love is made of four elements: loving kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Our suffering is us, and we need to treat it with kindness and nonviolence.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Your dream can be realized right in the present moment. You live your life in such a way that every step in the right direction and every breath along the way becomes the realization of your dream. Your dream does not take you away from the present; on the contrary, your dream becomes reality in the present moment.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Breath remains the vehicle to unite body and mind and to open the gate to wisdom.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “The essence of love and compassion is understanding, the ability to recognize the physical, material, and psychological suffering of others, to put ourselves “inside the skin” of the other.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Every time we truly stop and look deeply, the result is a better understanding of the true nature of what is there inside us and around us.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “A person is not some private entity traveling unaffected through time and space as if sealed off from the rest of the world by some thick shell.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Sometimes our parents are full of love and sometimes they are full of anger. This love and anger comes not only from them, but from all previous generations. When we can see this, we no longer blame our parents for our suffering.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Impermanence means that everything changes and that nothing remains the same in any consecutive moments. And although things change every moment, they still cannot be accurately described as the same or as different from what they were a moment ago.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “He saw that living beings suffer because they do not understand that they share one common ground with all beings.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “The wise do not consider the chains and shackles of jail to be the toughest restraints. The chains of attachment are the strongest of the ties that bind.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “No one can be by himself or herself alone. We have to inter-be, connected with everyone and everything else.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “If we are aware of our lifestyle, our way of consuming, of looking at things, we will know how to make peace right in the moment we are alive.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “The Buddha teaches that change requires insight, and insight cannot begin until we stop and focus our attention on what is happening right in front of us. This stopping, or shamatha, allows us to rest the body and the mind. When we have calmed ourselves, we can then go on to look deeply into our current situation. We need to step off our frantic life treadmills, to stop unconsciously doing the same things over and over again that have allowed our weight to creep up.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Desirelessness is the basic condition that makes possible the feelings of joy, peace, and ease that come with living a simple life. Simplicity means to have few desires, to be content with a simple life and just a few possessions. Desirelessness is the basis of true happiness, because in true happiness there must be the elements of peace, joy, and ease.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Stillness is the foundation of understanding and insight.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “The most effective way to show compassion to another is to listen, rather than talk. You have an opportunity to practice deep, compassionate listening. If you can listen to the other person with compassion, your listening is like a salve for her wound. In the practice of compassionate listening, you listen with only one purpose, which is to give the other person the chance to speak out and to suffer less.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Freedom is not given to us by anyone; we have to cultivate it ourselves. It is a daily practice.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “To live in the present moment is a miracle. The miracle is not to walk on water. The miracle is to walk on the green Earth in the present moment, to appreciate the peace and beauty that are available now.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Do not avoid contact with suffering or close your eyes before suffering. Do not lose awareness of the existence of suffering in the life of the world. Find ways to be with those who are suffering by all means, including personal contact and visits, images, sounds. By such means,... awaken yourself and others to the reality of suffering in the world. If we get in touch with the suffering of the world, and are moved by that suffering, we may come forward to help the people who are suffering.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “When we’re able to love our enemy, that person is no longer our enemy. The idea of “enemy” vanishes and is replaced by the person who is suffering and needs our compassion.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “If we practice for five or ten minutes every day, we’ll naturally remember how to practice when we most need it, and we can survive the onslaught of a strong emotion very easily.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “You have to realize that happiness is not something you find at the end of the road. You have to understand that it is here, now.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Love is a living, breathing thing. There is no need to force it to grow in a particular direction. If we start by being easy and gentle with ourselves, we will find it is just there inside of us, solid and healing.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Fear keeps us focused on the past or worried about the future. If we can acknowledge our fear, we can realize that right now we are okay.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “I inherit the results of my acts of body, speech, and mind. My actions are my continuation.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “In this food I see clearly the presence of the entire universe supporting my existence.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “All that is dear to me and everyone I love are of the nature to change. There is no way to escape being separated from them. I cannot keep anything. I come here empty-handed, and I go empty-handed. My actions are my only true belongings. I cannot escape the consequences of my actions. My actions are the ground on which I stand.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “The only place where we can touch Jesus and the Kingdom of God is within us.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “FREEDOM IS THE basis of all happiness. Without freedom, there is no happiness.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Thanks to impermanence, everything is possible. Life itself is possible. If a grain of corn is not impermanent, it can never be transformed into a stalk of corn. If the stalk were not impermanent, it could never provide us with the ear of corn we eat.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “When you prepare a meal with artful awareness, it’s delicious and healthy. You have put your mindfulness, love, and care into the meal, then people will be eating your love.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “It is often said that the Buddha’s teaching is only a raft to help you cross the river, a finger pointing to the moon. Don’t mistake the finger for the moon. The raft is not the shore. If we cling to the raft, if we cling to the finger, we miss everything.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Impermanence and selflessness are not negative aspect of life, but the very foundation on which life is built. Impermanence is the constant transformation of things. Without impermanence, there can be no life. Selflessness is the interdependent nature of all things. Without interdependence, nothing could exist.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “There is a saying: If a tiger comes down off his mountain and goes to the lowlands, he will be caught by humans and killed. It means if a practitioner leaves his or her Sangha, it becomes difficult to continue the practice. Taking refuge in the Sangha is not a matter of devotion. It is a matter of practice.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “The notions and ideas we have about happiness can entrap us. We forget that they are just notions and ideas. Our idea of happiness may be the very thing that’s preventing us from being happy. When we’re caught in a belief that happiness should take a particular form, we fail to see the opportunities for joy that are right in front of us.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “If you are lost in a forest at night, you can follow the North Star to find your way out. You follow the North Star, but your goal is to get back home; it’s not to arrive at the North Star.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “TO ME, THE definition of hell is simple: it is a place where there is no understanding and no compassion.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “There are four kinds of food that every person consumes every day. In Buddhism, we call these kinds of food the Four Nutriments. They are edible food; sense impressions; volition; and consciousness, both individual and collective.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Love, respect, and friendship all need food to survive.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Self-love is the foundation for your capacity to love the other person. If you don’t take good care of yourself, if you are not happy, if you are not peaceful, you cannot make the other person happy. You cannot help the other person; you cannot love. Your capacity for loving another person depends entirely on your capacity for loving yourself, for taking care of yourself. Healing.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “The object of your practice should first of all be yourself. Your love for the other, your ability to love another person, depends on your ability to love yourself.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Every one of us is trying to find our true home. Some of us are still searching. Our true home is inside, but it’s also in our loved ones around us. When you’re in a loving relationship, you and the other person can be a true home for each other.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “One day my left hand was holding a nail and my right hand a hammer. I was trying to hang a picture and I was not very mindful. Instead of pounding on the nail I pounded on the finger. Right away my right hand put the hammer down and took care of my left hand as if she were taking care of herself.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “When you lose a loved one, you suffer. But if you know how to look deeply, you have a chance to realize that his or her nature is truly the nature of no birth, no death. There is manifestation and there is the cessation of manifestation in order to have another manifestation. You have to be very keen and very alert in order to recognize the new manifestations of just one person.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Words can travel thousands of miles. May my words create mutual understanding and love. May they be as beautiful as gems, as lovely as flowers.3.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “The past no longer exists, and the future is not here yet.” The only moment in which you can be truly alive is the present moment. The present moment is the destination, the point to arrive at. Every time you breathe in and take a step, you arrive: “Breathing in, I arrive. Breathing out, I arrive.” The.”
