True love does not choose one person. When true love is there, you shine like a lamp. You just don’t shine on one person in the room. That light that you emit is for everyone in the room. If you really have love in you, everyone around you will profit – not only humans but animals, plants, and minerals. Love, true love, is that. True love is equanimity. — Thich Nhat Hanh.

Deep listening, compassionate listening is not listening with the purpose of analyzing or even uncovering what has happened in the past. You listen first of all in order to give the other person relief, a chance to speak out, to feel that someone finally understands him or her. Deep listening is the kind of listening that helps us to keep compassion alive while the other speaks, which may be for half an hour or forty-five minutes. During this time you have in mind only one idea, one desire: to listen in order to give the other person the chance to speak out and suffer less. This is your only purpose. Other things like analyzing, understanding the past, can be a by-product of this work. But first of all, listen with compassion. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh.

If you are lost in a forest at night, you can follow the North Star to find your way out. You follow the North Star, but your goal is to get back home; it’s not to arrive at the North Star. — Thich Nhat Hanh. @thichnhathanhquotecollective @_thich_nhat_hanh_ #home #present #presentmoment #mindfulness #thay #thaysaid #thichnhathanhquotecollective #thichnhathanh #buddhistquotes #thichnhathanhquotes

If we are not happy, if we are not peaceful, we cannot share peace and happiness with others, even those we love, those who live under the same roof. If we are peaceful, if we are happy, we can smile and blossom like a flower, and everyone in our family, our entire society, will benefit from our peace. — Thich Nhat Hanh. @thichnhathanhquotecollective @_thich_nhat_hanh_ #thay #thaysaid #thichnhathanhquotecollective #peace #happy #thichnhathanh #buddhistquotes #thichnhathanhquotes
