On the Present Moment

*

“Breathing in, I calm body toàn thân and mind. Breathing out, I smile. Dwelling in the present moment I know this is the only moment.”

“Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves – slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future.”

“I promise myself that I will enjoy every minute of the day that is given me to live.”

“The mind can go in a thousand directions, but on this beautiful path, I walk in peace. With each step, the wind blows. With each step, a flower blooms.”

“When we are mindful, deeply in cảm ứng with the present moment, our understanding of what is going on deepens, & we begin khổng lồ be filled with acceptance, joy, peace & love.”

“Peace can exist only in the present moment. It is ridiculous khổng lồ say “Wait until I finish this, then I will be free to live in peace.” What is “this”? A di­ploma, a job, a house, the payment of a debt? If you think that way, peace will never come. There is always another “this” that will follow the present one. If you are not living in peace at this moment, you will never be able to. If you truly want to be at peace, you must be at peace right now. Otherwise, there is only “the hope of peace some day.”

“Each time you look at a tangerine, you can see deeply into it. You can see everything in the universe in one tangerine. When you peel it và smell it, it’s wonderful. You can take your time eating a tangerine & be very happy.”

“I will practice coming back to lớn the present moment…not letting regrets và sorrow drag me back into the past or letting anxieties, fears, or cravings pull me out…”

“The present moment is the substance with which the future is made. Therefore, the best way lớn take care of the future is lớn take care of the present moment. What else can you do?”

On Suffering

“When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, & his suffering is spilling over. He does not need punishment; he needs help. That’s the message he is sending.”

“People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.”

“The seed of suffering in you may be strong, but don’t wait until you have no more suffering before allowing yourself to lớn be happy.”

“Suffering is not enough. Life is both dreadful & wonderful…How can I smile when I am filled with so much sorrow? It is natural–you need to smile khổng lồ your sorrow because you are more than your sorrow.”

“Most people are afraid of suffering. But suffering is a kind of mud khổng lồ help the lotus flower of happiness grow. There can be no lotus flower without the mud.”

On Acceptance and Letting Go

“To be beautiful means khổng lồ be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.”

“Letting go gives us freedom, và freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to lớn anything – anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free.”

“For things khổng lồ reveal themselves to us, we need khổng lồ be ready lớn abandon our views about them.”

“Take my hand. We will walk. We will only walk. We will enjoy our walk without thinking of arriving anywhere.”

“The raft is used to cross the river. It isn’t khổng lồ be carried around on your shoulders. The finger which points at the moon isn’t the moon itself.”

On How Lucky we are to be Alive

*

“People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but lớn walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a xanh sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child — our own two eyes. All is a miracle.”

“Because you are alive, everything is possible.”

“Waking up this morning, I smile. Twenty-four brand new hours are before me. I vow khổng lồ live fully in each moment and to look at all beings with eyes of compassion.”

“Life is a miracle, và being aware of simply this can already make us very happy.”

“Birth is okay & death is okay, if we know that they are only concepts in our mind. Reality transcends both birth và death.”

“Everyday we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child – our own two eyes. All is a miracle.”

On Understanding

“When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you don’t blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it is not doing well. It may need fertilizer, or more water, or less sun. You never blame the lettuce. Yet if we have problems with our friends or family, we blame the otherperson. But if we know how to lớn take care of them, they will grow well, lượt thích the lettuce. Blaming has no positive effect at all, nor does trying to lớn persuade using reason & argument. That is my experience. No blame, no reasoning, no argument, just understanding. If you understand, và you show that you understand, you can love, và the situation will change”

On Happiness

*

“Many people think excitement is happiness…. But when you are excited you are not peaceful. True happiness is based on peace.”

“Without suffering, there’s no happiness. So we shouldn’t discriminate against the mud. We have to learn how lớn embrace and cradle our own suffering and the suffering of the world, with a lot of tenderness.”

“Without suffering, there’s no happiness. So we shouldn’t discriminate against the mud. We have to learn how khổng lồ embrace & cradle our own suffering and the suffering of the world, with a lot of tenderness.”

“Mindfulness helps you go home to the present. And every time you go there và recognize a condition of happiness that you have, happiness comes”

On Love

“Through my love for you, I want khổng lồ express my love for the whole cosmos, the whole of humanity, & all beings. By living with you, I want to learn khổng lồ love everyone và all species. If I succeed in loving you, I will be able to love everyone & all species on Earth… This is the real message of love.”

“If you love someone but rarely make yourself available lớn him or her, that is not true love.”
