Haunted by the Past – Thich Nhat Hanh

When we’re holding the mental formations of despair and suffering, we can look and see that this has been born from that; suffering is born because we are in touch with an image from the past. The reality is that we are safe, and we have the capacity to enjoy the wonders of life in the present moment. When we recognize that our suffering is based on images instead of current reality, then living happily in the present moment becomes possible right away. – Thich Nhat Hanh.

Cultivate Solidity – Thich Nhat Hanh.

You are somebody; you are something. You are a positive factor for your family, for society, for the world. You have to recover yourself, to be yourself. You have to become solid again. You can practice solidity in everyday life. Every step, every breath you take should help you become more solid. When you have solidity, freedom is there too. – Thich Nhat Hanh. @thichnhathanhquotecollective #thay #thaysaid #cultivatesolidity #thichnhathanhquotecollective #solidity #thichnhathanh #freedom #buddhistquotes #thichnhathanhquotes

Elegant Silence

During the time you are practicing mindfulness, you stop talking – not only the talking outside, but the talking inside. The talking  inside is the thinking, the mental discourse that goes on and on and on inside. Real silence is the cessation or talking – of both the mouth and of the mind. This is not the kind of silence that oppresses us. It is a very elegant kind of silence, a very powerful kind of silence. It is the silence that heals and nourishes us. – Thich Nhat Hanh. @thichnhathanhquotecollective  #thay #thaysaid #mindfulness #healing #thichnhathanhquotecollective #thichnhathanh #silence #elegantsilence #buddhistquotes #thichnhathanhquotes

A Relaxation Practice – Thich Nhat Hanh

When you walk in the hills or in a park or along a riverbank, you can follow your breath with a half-smile blooming on your lips. When you feel tired or irritated, you can lie down with your arms at your sides, allowing all your muscles to relax, maintaining awareness of just your breath and your smile.  Relaxing in this way is wonderful, and quite refreshing. You will benefit a lot if you practice it several times a day. – Thich Nhat Hanh.  @thichnhathanhquotecollective #thay #thaysaid #thichnhathanhquotecollective #thichnhathanh #relaxation #relaxationpractice #smile #buddhistquotes #breath #thichnhathanhquotes

The River Of Feelings

Feelings are born, take shape, last for a few moments, and then disappear. As with the physical form, birth and death of feelings occur in every moment. In meditation, we look mindfully at the river of feelings. We contemplate their arising, their remaining, and their disappearance. We witness their impermanence. When we have an unpleasant feeling, we say to ourselves, “This feeling is in me, it will stay for a while, and then it will disappear because it is impermanent.” Just by seeing the impermanence of feelings in this way, we suffer a lot less. – Thich Nhat Hanh. @thichnhathanhquotecollective #thay #thaysaid #impermanence #thichnhathanhquotecollective #thichnhathanh #buddhistquotes #thichnhathanhquotes
