If we practice the art of mindful living together, we can see that the other person, like us, has both flowers and compost inside, and we accept this. Our practice is to water the flowerness in her, and not bring her more garbage. We avoid blaming and arguing. When we try to grow flowers, if the flowers do not grow well, we do not blame them or argue with them. We ask ourselves what we can do to help them grow more beautifully, To help a flower grow well, we must understand her nature. How much water does she need? How much sunshine? We look deeply into ourselves to see our true nature, and we look into the other person to see her true nature. – Thich Nhat Hanh. @thichnhathanhquotecollective #thay #thaysaid #thichnhathanhquotecollective #thichnhathanh #mindfulliving #buddhistquotes #truenature #flowerness #lookingdeeply #thichnhathanhquotes

Touching the present moment does not mean getting rid of the past or the future. As you touch the present moment, you realize that the present is made of the past and creating the future. Touching the present, you touch the past and the future at the same time. You touch the infinity of time, the ultimate dimension of reality. – Thich Nhat Hanh. @thichnhathanhquotecollective #thay #thaysaid #thichnhathanhquotecollective #thichnhathanh #buddhistquotes #reality #presentmoment #past #future #thichnhathanhquotes
