When you feel overwhelmed, you’re trying too hard. That kind of energy does not help the other person and it does not help you. You should not be too eager to help right away. There are two things: to be and to do. Don’t think too much about to do—to be is first. To be peace. To be joy. To be happiness. And then to do joy, to do happiness—on the basis of being. So first you have to focus on the practice of being. Being fresh. Being peaceful. Being attentive. Being generous. Being compassionate. This is the basic practice. It’s like if the other person is sitting at the foot of a tree. The tree does not do anything, but the tree is fresh and alive. When you are like that tree, sending out waves of freshness, you help to calm down the suffering in the other person. — Thich Nhat Hanh. @thichnhathanhquotecollective #thay #thaysaid #thichnhathanhquotecollective #thichnhathanh #peace #happiness #being #buddhistquotes #thichnhathanhquotes

When an animal in the jungle is wounded, it knows how to find a quiet place, lie down and do nothing. The animal knows that is the only way to get healed — to lay down and just rest. – Thich Nhat Hanh. @thichnhathanhquotecollective #thay #healing #heal #thichnhathanh #buddhistquotes #thichnhathanhquotecollective #thichnhathanhquotes
