We have a tendency to think in terms of doing and not in terms of being. We think that when we’re not doing anything, we’re wasting our time. But that’s not true. Our time is first of all for us to be. To be what? To be alive, to be peaceful, to be joyful, to be loving. And this is what the world needs the most. We all need to train ourselves in our way of being, and that is the ground for all action. Our quality of being determines our quality of doing.

- Thich Nhat Hanh, in “The Art of Living”.

“People suffer because they are caught in their views. As soon as we release those views, we are free and we don't suffer anymore.”

― Thich Nhat Hanh

I am with Thich Nhat Hanh on that one, yes you may pray you may express your inner light, but never become anxious about anything...

Yes, he could tell, like we can tell about him...

just as Martin Luther King Jr, a Baptist, and Thich Nhat Hanh, a Buddhist, collaborated to help end the Vietnam War and alleviate suffering for many, i hope and pray that current American Christians and American Buddhists will collectively tackle and dismantle systemic racism that plagues the USA today...namo Guan Shr Yin Pusa

In our time, in our civilization, sitting and doing nothing is considered either to be a luxury or a waste of time. But sitting can produce the most nourishing calm and joy and we can all afford some time to sit. How wonderful to sit and do nothing.

Life has left her footprints on my forehead.

But I have become a child again thi...s morning.
The smile, seen through leaves and flowers,
is back to smooth away the wrinkles,
as the rains wipe away footprints on the beach.
Again a cycle of birth and death begins.

- Thich Nhat Hanh
