When a painful emotion comes up, stop whatever you are doing and take care of it. Pay attention to what is happening. The practice is simple. Lie down, put your hand on your belly, and begin to breathe. Stop thinking, and focus all your attention on the rise and fall of the abdomen. Breathe deeply and focus your attention only on your in-breath and out-breath. An emotion is only an emotion. You are body, feelings, perceptions, mental formations, and consciousness. — Thich Nhat Hanh. @thichnhathanhquotecollective #thay #thichnhathanhquotecollective #thichnhathanh #breathe #inbreathoutbreath #consciousness #emotions #mindfulness #thichnhathanh #buddhistquotes #thichnhathanhquotes
