The feeling that any task is a nuisance will soon disappear if it is done in mindfulness. — Thich Nhat Hanh.

Every minute can be a holy, sacred minute. Where do you seek the spiritual? You seek the spiritual in every ordinary thing that you do every day. Sweeping the floor, watering the vegetables, and washing the dishes become holy and sacred if mindfulness is there. With mindfulness and concentration, everything becomes spiritual. – Thich Nhat Hanh. @thichnhathanhquotecollective #spiritual #work #task #mindfulness #thay #thichnhathanhquotecollective #thichnhathanh #buddhistquotes #thichnhathanhquotes

Breathing mindfully takes our mind back to our breath and, if we continue, to our whole body. We go back to our body and reconcile with it. We get to know what’s going on in our body, the wrongs we have done, the conflicts we’re having, and we’ll know what to do and what not to do in order to be on good terms with our body. With mindful breathing, we come to recognize our body as our home. We might say:

Breathing in, I am aware of my body.
Breathing out, I smile to my whole body.

When we observe or listen to other people, we often don’t see them clearly or really hear what they are saying. We see or hear our projections and prejudices instead. We have wrong perceptions about others, which color what we see and hear. Even if a friend gives us a compliment, we find it difficult to receive their kind words. Most of the time, our mind, thoughts, and feelings aren’t calm. They’re like the water in a muddy lake, which can’t reflect the sky because it’s been churned up by a storm. If we’re not calm, we can’t listen deeply and understand. But when our mind is calm, we can see reality more clearly, like still water reflecting the trees, the clouds, and the blue sky. Stillness is the foundation of understanding and insight. Stillness is strength. — Thich Nhat Hanh. @thichnhathanhquotecollective #thay #stillness #calm #noise #nature #understanding #soundsoflife #mindfulness #thichnhathanhquotecollective #thichnhathanh #thichnhathanhquotes #buddhistquotes

You carry Mother Earth within you. She is not outside of you. Mother Earth is not just your environment. In that insight of inter-being, it is possible to have real communication with the Earth, which is the highest form of prayer. Breathing in, I know Mother Earth is in me. Breathing out, I know that I am in Mother Earth.- Thich Nhat Hanh. @thichnhathanhquotecollective #thay #motherearth #earth #mindfulness #thichnhathanhquotecollective #thichnhathanh #thichnhathanhquotes #buddhistquotes

Sometimes we forget about impermanence. We think that our loved one will be with us forever and we forget how precious her presence is in this moment. Once we’re really there for the other person, that person becomes something very real. When the other person is real, she is a wonderful manifestation of life and we need to let her know that, for her happiness and for our own.
