Mindfulness

If you know how to practice mindfulness you can generate peace and joy right here, right now. And you’ll appreciate that and it will change you. In the beginning, you believe that if you cannot become number one, you cannot be happy, but if you practice mindfulness you will readily release that kind of idea. We need not fear that mindfulness might become only a means and not an end because in mindfulness the means and the end are the same thing. There is no way to happiness; happiness is the way. If you consider mindfulness as a means of having a lot of money, then you have not touched its true purpose. It may look like the practise of mindfulness but inside there’s no peace, no joy, no happiness produced. It’s just an imitation. If you don’t feel the energy of brotherhood, of sisterhood, radiating from your work, that is not mindfulness. – Thich Nhat Hanh. @thichnhathanhquotecollective #thay #thaysaid #thichnhathanhquotecollective #thichnhathanh #buddhistquotes #thichnhathanhquotes

The moment when you sit down and begin to breathe in, calming your mind and your body, peace has become a reality. That kind of breathing is like praying. When there is the element of peace in you, you can help others to be peaceful like you. Together you become a body of peace, the Sangha body of peace. – Thich Nhat Hanh. @thichnhathanhquotecollective #thay #thaysaid #thichnhathanhquotecollective #thichnhathanh #buddhistquotes #peace #sangha #thichnhathanhquotes

The Earth has been there for along time. She is Mother to all of us. She knows everything. The Buddha asked the Earth to be his witness by touching her with his hand when he had some doubt and fear before his awakening. The Earth appeared to him as a beautiful mother. In her arms she carried flowers and fruit, birds and butterflies, and many different animals, and offered them to the Buddha. The Buddha’s doubts and fears instantly disappeared. Whenever you feel unhappy, come to the Earth and ask for her help. Touch her deeply, the way the Buddha did. Suddenly, you too will see the Earth with all her flowers and fruit trees and birds, animals, and all the living beings that she has produced. All these things she offers to you. – Thich Nhat Hanh. @thichnhathanhquotecollective #thay #thaysaid #thichnhathanhquotecollective #thichnhathanh #buddhistquotes #thichnhathanhquotes
