Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Look at the tree in the front yard. The tree doesn’t seem to be doing anything. It stands there, vigorous, fresh, and beautiful, and everyone profits from it. That’s the miracle of being. If a tree were less than a tree, all of us would be in trouble. But if a tree is just a real tree, then there’s hope and joy. That’s why if you can be yourself, that is already action. Action is based on non-action; action is being. There are people who do a lot, but who also.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “We may have suffered a lot because of our attachment to those things, but we don’t have the courage to release them; it doesn’t feel safe to do so. But it may be that we continue to suffer because of our attachment to those things. It may be a person, a material object, or a position in society, anything. We think that without that person or thing we will not be safe, and that is why we’re caught by it.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “A sexual relationship is an act of communion between body and spirit. This is a very important encounter, not to be done in a casual manner. In our soul there are certain areas – memories, pain, secrets – that are private, that we would share only with the person we love and trust the most. We do not open our heart and show it to just anyone.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “The future is being made out of the present, so the best way to take care of the future is to take care of the present moment. This is logical and clear. Spending a lot of time speculating and worrying about the future is totally useless. We can only take care of our future by taking care of the present moment, because the future is made out of only one substance: the present. Only if you are anchored in the present can you prepare well for the future. Although.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “My dear friend, I may be the victim of wrong perceptions, and what I write here may not reflect the truth. However, this is my experience of the situation. This is what I really feel in my heart. If there is anything wrong in what I write, let us sit down and look into it together.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “When you sit alone quietly, it’s something beautiful, even if nobody sees it.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “What is love? Love is treating your heart with a great deal of tenderness, with understanding, love, and compassion. If you cannot treat your own heart this way, how can you treat your partner with understanding and love?”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “We wanted peace. We did not care about anyone’s victory or defeat. We just wanted the bombs to stop falling on us.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “A wave has a right to live her life as a wave, but she must also learn to live her life as water because she is not only a wave. She is also water. And water lives without the fear carried by the wave.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “As the Buddha said, “The past no longer is, the future is not yet here; there is only one moment in which life is available, and that is the present moment.” To meditate with mindful breathing is to bring body and mind back to the present moment so that you do not miss your appointment with life.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Our idea of happiness may be the very thing that’s preventing us from being happy.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Peace is based on respect for life, the spirit of reverence for life.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “During the past few years I have avoided tiring myself and losing my breath. I must take care of my body, treat it with respect as a musician does his instrument. I apply nonviolence to my body, for it is not merely a tool to accomplish something. It itself is the end.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “When we observe or listen to other people, we often don’t see them clearly or really hear what they’re saying. We see and hear our projections and prejudices instead.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “I am determined not to spread news that I do not know to be certain and not to utter words that can cause division or discord.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Relax. It’s only a game.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Some people think that in order to be happy they must avoid all suffering, and so they are constantly vigilant, constantly worrying. They end up sacrificing all their spontaneity, freedom, and joy.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Everyone wants to be happy, and there is a strong energy in us pushing us toward what we think will make us happy. But we may suffer a lot because of this. We need the insight that position, revenge, wealth, fame, or possessions are, more often than not, obstacles to our happiness. We need to cultivate the wish to be free of these things so we can enjoy the wonders of life that are always available – the blue sky, the trees, our beautiful children.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Release your cows so you can be truly happy.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “We can walk in such a way that we arrive with each step – not walking just to get somewhere else.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Without suffering, we do not have the opportunity to cultivate compassion and understanding; and without understanding, there can be no true love. So.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Your good intentions are not enough; you have to be artful. We may be filled with goodwill; we may be motivated by the desire to make the other person happy, but out of our clumsiness, we make them unhappy. Walking, eating, breathing, talking, and working are all opportunities to practice creating happiness inside you and around you. Mindful living is an art, and each of us has to train to be an artist.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “You have to protect yourself and your beloved ones by practicing selective watering.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “If we can model the ability to embody nonfear and nonattachment, it is more precious than any money or material wealth. Fear spoils our lives and makes us miserable. We cling to objects and people, like a drowning person clings to any object that floats by. By practicing nonattachment and sharing this wisdom with others, we give the gift of nonfear. Everything is impermanent. This moment passes. The object of our craving walks away, but we can know happiness is always possible. Intoxicants.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Many of us slog through life without conscious awareness or intention. We set ourselves a course and we barrel ahead, without stopping to ask whether this path is fulfilling our most important goals. That’s partly because many of us believe that happiness is not possible in the here and now. We think we need to struggle now so that we will be happy in the future. So we postpone happiness and try to run into the future and attain the conditions of happiness that we don’t have now.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Why wander all over the world looking for something you already have? You are already the richest person on Earth.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Whenever you find yourself judging your partner, go back to your in-breath and out-breath, and ask, How can I see this differently? Can I look more deeply to better understand her suffering and her difficulties?”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “The energies of wisdom, compassion, inclusiveness, fearlessness, patience, and non-discrimination – never disparaging anyone – are all the qualities of awakened beings. Cultivating.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Knowledge is the first obstacle of the mind that a meditator should be able to remove. We should not be too sure of anything.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “What are you ruminating on? Old suffering?”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “When a person’s speech is full of anger, it is because he or she suffers deeply. Because he has so much suffering, he becomes full of bitterness. He is always ready to complain and blame others for his problems. This is why you find it very unpleasant to listen to him and try to avoid him.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “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.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “When we surround ourselves with people who are committed to understanding and loving, we’re nourished by their presence and our own seeds of understanding and love are watered. When we surround ourselves with people who gossip, complain, and are constantly critical, we absorb these toxins.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “The miracle is not to walk on water or in thin air, but to walk on Earth. Walk in such a way that you become fully alive and joy and happiness are possible. That is the miracle that everyone can perform... If you have mindfulness, concentration, and insight then every step you make on this Earth is performing a miracle.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “We really have to understand the person we want to love. If our love is only a will to possess, it is not love. If we only think of ourselves, if we know only our own needs and ignore the needs of the other person, we cannot love. We must look deeply in order to see and understand the needs, aspirations, and suffering of the person we love. This is the ground of real love. You cannot resist loving another person when you really understand him or her.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Shallow understanding accompanies shallow compassion. Great understanding goes with great compassion.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Things cannot stay the same because they are influenced by everything else, everything that is not itself.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “In the West, we are very goal oriented. We know where we want to go, and we are very directed in getting there. This may be useful, but often we forget to enjoy ourselves along the route.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “If you can’t accept your body and your mind, you can’t be a home for yourself. Many young people don’t accept who they are, and yet they want to be a home for someone else. But how can they be if they’re not yet a home for themselves?”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “We are not passive. To be passive means to be pulled, pushed, and swayed by circumstances or the people around us.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “We all lose when we think that everything people in our party do and say is right and everything people in another party do and say is wrong. This is simply not true. If we think, speak, and act only along party lines, we operate like a machine without insight, without understanding, without compassion.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Life is real; it’s not a dream when mindfulness is there.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “When there are wars within us, it will not be long before we are at war with others, even those we love.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “We are imprisoned in our small selves, thinking only of the comfortable conditions for this small self, while we destroy our large self.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “We disregard the wonders of the present moment, thinking that heaven and the ultimate are for later, not for now.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “Consciously choosing what and who you surround yourself with is among the keys to finding more space for joy.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “I am convinced that happiness is not possible unless it is based on freedom.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “A successful relationship depends on us recognising our own painful feelings and emotions inside – not fighting them, but accepting, embracing, and transforming them to get relief.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “We can also explore four additional concentrations on impermanence, non-craving, letting go, and nirvana. These four practices are found in Sutra on the Full Awareness of Breathing, a wonderful text from early Buddhism.”
Thich Nhat Hanh Quote: “When you touch deep understanding and love, you are healed.”
