Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Throughout our life we produce energy. We say things and do things, and every thought, every word, and every act carries our signature. What we produce as thoughts, as speech, as action, continues to influence the world, and that is our continuation body. Our actions carry us into the future. We are like stars whose light energy continues to radiate across the cosmos millions of years after they become extinct.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “When a feeling or thought arises, your intention should not be to chase it away, even if by continuing to concentrate on the breath the feeling or thought passes naturally from the mind. The intention isn’t to chase it away, hate it, worry about it, or be frightened by it. So what exactly should you be doing concerning such thoughts and feelings? Simply acknowledge their presence.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “When you have trouble sleeping, follow your breathing in and breathing out. Bring your awareness to the different parts of your body in turn, and allow them to relax.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “In everyone there’s a continuous desire and expectation; deep inside, you still expect something better to happen. That is why you check your email many times a day!”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “The best position for practicing this is lying down. You focus your attention on a part of your body, such as your heart. As you breathe in, you become aware of your heart, and as you breathe out, you smile towards it. You send it your love, your tenderness.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “We’re all searching for a place where we feel safe and comfortable, a home where we can be truly ourselves. As we become more skilled in mindfulness and lay down the roots of fidelity, we can truly relax with our partner. All the restlessness and searching inside dissipates when we find our true home.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “A guided meditation is an opportunity to look deeply into the mind, to sow wholesome seeds there, and to strengthen and cultivate those seeds so that they may become the means for transforming the suffering in us.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “While practicing mindfulness, don’t be dominated by the distinction between good and evil, thus creating a battle within oneself.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Each morning when we wake up to life we see that we have a gift of twenty-four brand new hours. If.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Live in a way that encourages deep happiness in yourself and others. You can vow to bring joy to one person in the morning and to help relieve the suffering of one person in the afternoon. Ask yourself, “Who can I make smile this morning?” This is the art of creating happiness.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Even if we have time, we don’t come home to ourselves. We try to keep ourselves constantly entertained – watching television, socialising, or using alcohol or drugs – because we don’t want to experience that suffering all over again.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “When you climb a beautiful mountain, invite your child within to climb with you. When you contemplate the sunset, invite her to enjoy it with you.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “We must begin to live fully and truly, every moment of our daily lives.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Suffering has its beneficial aspects. It can be an excellent teacher.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “If we lose the present moment, we lose life.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “There are animals that are ruminants, like water buffalo and cows. After chewing and swallowing, they bring up the food again and they chew and swallow it again. There are people who continue to consume the suffering of the past in that way. They spend their time during the day ruminating over their own suffering from the past.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Listen Bhikkhus, just as a buffalo boy recognizes each of his own buffaloes, a bhikkhu recognizes each of the essential elements of his own body. Just as a buffalo boy knows the characteristics and tendencies of each buffalo, a bhikkhu knows which actions of body, speech, and mind are worthy and which are not. Just as a buffalo boy scrubs his animals clean, a bhikkhu must cleanse his mind and body of desires, attachments, anger, and aversions.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “There is no distinction between means and ends. There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way. There is no way to enlightenment, enlightenment is the way.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “If you get angry every day, your seed of anger will grow bigger and bigger, and it will be much more difficult for compassion to grow. Without compassion, it will be difficult to use loving speech.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Even when we’re sitting still, with no external stimuli, an endless internal dialogue may be going on in our head. we’re constantly consuming our thoughts. Cows, goats, and buffalo chew their food, swallow it, then regurgitate and rechew it multiple times. We may not be cows or buffalo, but we ruminate just the same on our thoughts – unfortunately, primarily negative thoughts. We eat them, and then we bring them up to chew again and again, like a cow chewing its cud.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “The way we perceive the world around us depends entirely on our way of looking at it.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Suppose you want something very much. You think that if you don’t get that something, happiness won’t be possible. You get caught in that idea. But, in reality, there are people who have that thing who are miserable, and there people who don’t have that thing who are perfectly happy.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Much of our suffering comes from wrong perceptions. To remove that hurt, we have to remove our wrong perception.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “If one person keeps calm and smiles at a provocation, the whole world will have a better chance for peace.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “In modern society most of us don’t want to be in touch with ourselves; we want to be in touch with other things like religion, sports, politics, a book – we want to forget ourselves. Anytime we have leisure, we want to invite something else to enter us, opening ourselves to the television and telling the television to come and colonize us.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “If you are really joyful and your joy is healthy, then that benefits other people. If you’re not joyful, not fresh, or not smiling, then that doesn’t benefit anyone. If you’re inhabited by joy and freshness, even if you do nothing, we profit from you.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “There is no difference between healing ourselves and healing the Earth.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “What you read and write can help you heal, so be thoughtful about what you consume.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Mindfulness makes you and the other person happy and free. The other person may be caught in her worries, anger, and forgetfulness, but with mindfulness you can save her and yourself.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Ending our consumption of violent images and toxic communication gives us the chance to transform the violence and suffering in us.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “When we pay attention to our breathing, our in-breath and out-breath become peaceful and relaxed. When we walk with attention and we just walk without thinking or being carried away by anything, we already begin to heal.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “No view can ever be the truth. It is just from one point; that is why it is called a “point of view.” If we go to another point, we will see things differently and realize that our first view was not entirely right. Buddhism is not a collection of views. It is a practice to help us eliminate wrong views. The quality of our views can always be improved. From the viewpoint of ultimate reality, Right View is the absence of all views.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “When a farmer uses a kind of fertilizer that does not have any effect, he has to change the fertilizer. The same is true for us. If, after several months, the practice we are doing has not brought about any transformation and healing, we have to reconsider the situation.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “When you work with your computer for three or four hours, you are totally lost. It’s like eating french fries. You shouldn’t eat french fries all day, and you shouldn’t be on the computer all day.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “You have to practice going back to your wounded child every day. You have to embrace him or her tenderly, like a big brother or a big sister.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Our happiness and suffering are the happiness and suffering of others.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Standing in line at a grocery store or a restaurant, or waiting for the time to eat, we don’t need to waste our time. We don’t need to “wait” for one second. Instead, we can enjoy breathing in and out for our nourishment and healing. We can use that time to notice that we will soon be able to have food, and we can be happy and grateful during that time. Instead of waiting, we can generate joy.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “What we have is enough for us. Once we adopt that style of living, we become a happy person right away.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Hell is in us, like a seed. We need to cultivate the positive within us so we can generate the energy of understanding and compassion and transform hell.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Compassion doesn’t mean that you have to love that person who’s so difficult. But if you stop and look deeper, you’ll see that person’s difficulties. If you can accept him, then you can love him.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Someone asked me, “Aren’t you worried about the state of the world?” I allowed myself to breathe and then I said, “What is most important is not to allow your anxiety about what happens in the world to fill your heart. If your heart is filled with anxiety, you will get sick, and you will not be able to help.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Happiness is possible only when you stop running and cherish the present moment and who you are. Who you are is already a wonder; you don’t need to be someone else. You are a wonder of life.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “The way to suffer well and be happy is to stay in touch with what is actually going on; in doing so, you will gain liberating insights into the true nature of suffering and of joy. NO.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “The miracle is walking on the earth, not walking on water or fire. The real miracle is walking on this earth.”
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: “The truth is already in you. You only need to open yourself – body, mind, and heart – so that his or her teachings will penetrate your own seeds of understanding and enlightenment. If you let the words enter you, the soil and the seeds will do the rest of the work.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “We all exist as part of a wonderful stream of life.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “A few years ago, I asked some children, “What is the purpose of eating breakfast? One boy replied, “To get energy for the day.” Another said, “The purpose of eating breakfast is to eat breakfast.” I think the second child is more correct.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Anger is like a howling baby, suffering and crying. The baby needs his mother to embrace him. You are the mother for your baby, your anger. The moment you begin to practice breathing mindfully in and out, you have the energy of a mother, to cradle and embrace the baby. Just embracing your anger, just breathing in and breathing out, that is good enough. The baby will feel relief right away. All.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “The problem is whether we are determined to go in the direction of compassion or not. If we are, then can we reduce the suffering to a minimum? If I lose my direction, I have to look for the North Star, and I go to the north. That does not mean I expect to arrive at the North Star. I just want to go in that direction.”
