You can choose what to focus on, and therefore what to be. You can choose to be your in-breath and out-breath. You can choose to listen with your whole being to the sound of the rain or the wind, and in some way to be one with the rain or the wind. Listening to sounds in this way can be very joyful. When you are in touch with these refreshing and healing elements, you are being, and not thinking. – Thich Nhat Hanh. @thichnhathanhquotecollective #peace #joyful #inbreathandoutbreath #breathe #thaysaid #thichnhathanhquotecollective #thichnhathanh #buddhistquotes #thichnhathanhquotes

There are days when you feel it’s just not your day, and that everything is going wrong.
The more you try, the worse the situation becomes. Everyone has days like that. That’s when it’s time to stop everything, go home, and to take refuge in yourself.

Rearrange everything – your feelings, your perceptions, your emotions – they’re all
scattered everywhere; it’s a mess inside. Recognize and embrace each emotion…
Practice mindfulness and concentration, and tidy up everything within yourself.
This will help you restore your calm and peace. – 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.

We are a wave appearing on the surface of the ocean. The body of a wave does not last very long – perhaps only ten to twenty seconds. The wave is subject to beginning and ending, to going up and coming down. The wave may be caught in the idea that ‘I am here now and I won’t be here later.’ And the wave may feel afraid or even angry. But the wave also has her ocean body. She has come from the ocean, and she will go back to the ocean. She has both her wave body and her ocean body. She is not only a wave; she is also the ocean. The wave does not need to look for a separate ocean body, because she is in this very moment both her wave body and her ocean body. As soon as the wave can go back to herself and touch her true nature, which is water, then all fear and anxiety disappear. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh.
