A Collection Of Quotes From Thich Nhat Hanh That Will Uplift Your Soul

Vietnamese Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh is a Zen Master and global spiritual leader, peace activist and poet , known worldwide for his powerful teachings and bestselling writings on mindfulness and peace.

His greatest teaching is that, through mindfulness, we can be taught to live happily in the present moment and be at peace with oneself and with the world around us.
Here is a collection of some of his quotes that will not only teach you mindfulness in the simple things in life, but that will also bring peace to your soul.
• “There is nothing stronger in the world than gentleness.”
• “Walk and touch peace every moment. Walk and touch happiness every moment. Each step brings a fresh breeze. Each step makes a flower bloom. Kiss the earth with your feet. Bring the earth your love and happiness. The earth will be safe When we feel safe in ourselves.”
• “When we recognize the virtues, the talent, the beauty of Mother Earth, something is born in us, some kind of connection, love is born.”
• “Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts. Whenever your mind becomes scattered, use your breath as the means to take hold of your mind again.”
• “Sometimes we speak clumsily and create internal knots in others. Then we say, ‘I was just telling the truth.’ It may be the truth, but if our way of speaking causes unnecessary suffering, it is not. Right Speech. The truth must be presented in ways that others can accept. Words that damage or destroy are not Right Speech. Before you speak, understand the person you are speaking to. Consider each word carefully before
you say anything, so that your speech is ‘Right’ in both form and content.”
• “Insight brings love, and love is not possible without insight, understanding. If you do not understand, you cannot love. This insight is direct understanding, and not just a few notions and ideas. In meditation we allow ourselves to be shined on by the light of that insight."
• “Mindfulness is always mindfulness of something, just as anger is always anger at something. When you drink a glass of water and are aware that you are drinking a glass of water, that is mindfulness of drinking water. In this case, we produce mindfulness of anger. “Breathing in, I know I am angry. Breathing out, I know that anger is in me.” First, the energy of anger arises, and second, the energy of mindfulness arises. The second energy embraces the first in order to soothe it and allow it to subside.”
• “When you are angry, close your eyes and ears and return to yourself in order to quell the flames. Smile, even if it takes effort. Smiling relaxes hundreds of tiny muscles, making your face more attractive. Sit wherever you are and look deeply. If your concentration is not yet strong, you can go outside and practice walking meditation. Most essential is to water the seed of mindfulness and allow it to arise in your mind consciousness.”
• “The feeling that any task is a nuisance will soon disappear if it is done in mindfulness.”
• “Live the actual moment. Only this actual moment is life.”
• “People deal too much with the negative, with what is wrong. Why not try and see positive things, to just touch those things and make them bloom?”
• “Peace is present right here and now, in ourselves and in everything we do and see. Every breath we take, every step we take, can be filled with peace, joy, and serenity. The question is whether or not we are in touch with it. We need only to be awake, alive in the present moment.”

PROTECT YOURSELF FROM NEGATIVE ENERGY

E N E R G Y…. Although I have been an energy healer, channeler, and Spiritual Intuitive for about 7 years now I STILL think the word “energy” sounds SO new age-ish, don’t you?  Let me simplify and demystify this simple word’s meaning, and explain what healers like myself know energy to be.



Energy = Free floating emotions and thoughts. That is way more simple than you thought it would be, right?
Now that you know this I would like to invite you to take a moment after you read this article and think back to a time when you were in a GREAT mood, TOTALLY loving life, then you walked into a house or business and immediately felt edgy, or even angry, for no reason what so ever!  It has happened to me countless times and unfortunately, before I understood “energy”, it’s effect on me, was the basis of my depression, anxiety, and several other issues I struggled though for 16 years.
In 2009 I developed the ability to SEE energy, auras, angels and spirit guides with my eyes so I became driven to understand how it all worked.  I quickly learned that my sudden mood shifts we’re caused by another person’s energy, or free floating thoughts and emotions, entering into what I call my snow globe or in other words my personal bubble and field of consciousness.  The mood shift I would experience as their energy came into my snow globe was due to my brain processing those experiences as my own.
Here’s an example: Let’s say it’s date night at the house.  All is great, but you need to run out to buy butter for the popcorn.  You happily trot on out to the store while your happy date patiently waits for you to get back. While at the store you get rung up by a lady whose spouse is FURIOUS with her!  She does not share this with you.  In fact, you hardly say a few words and then smile and wave goodbye.  Five minutes later you walk through the door of your house and you get a nagging feeling that your date is FURIOUS at you!  Your mind scans for
reasons…. Did I take too long?  Did I buy the wrong butter?  Your mind pulls up a memory of a time 5 years ago when you were late for a date and your partner at that time yelled and screamed and broke up with you.  You begin to panic!
Meanwhile, your emotions start to build into defensiveness because you know you didn’t do anything wrong!  WHY is he SO FURIOUS!?  Although you can’t seem to think of why he could be mad, your mind (usually in the background) will continue to scan for reasons as to why that cashiers energy is actually your own.   This is the “minds” job!  To process the energy that passes through “our bubble” and find a person, a place, a memory, that matches the energy it is encountering.  In this case the cashier’s energy of being in trouble with her spouse got into your field and now you are absolutely positive that without a fraction of a doubt you are in BIG BIG trouble!  You even have a SICK feeling in the pit of your stomach that you may even think it’s your intuition telling you something!!  Has anything similar EVER happened to you?
This “phenomenon” is SERIOUSLY how most fights start not only between lovers and family, but most misunderstandings in the work place revolve around messy energy and the assumptions that we allow our minds to pull from our data base of past experiences that come with it.  All it takes is one person assuming one thing based on a “gut feeling” they get about why a coworker/family member happens to be doing something and then things start to spiral out from there.
So let’s go back to the happy couple watching their movie.  If she doesn’t realize QUICKLY that she picked up the cashier’s “my husband is so mad he is going to leave me because I cheated on him” energy she will most likely give him the silent treatment all night because he is not telling her why he is REALLY mad at her and then he will turn around and assume she has done something wrong and start accusing her (out loud or with in his own mind) of things she did not do.  Do you see where I am going with this???
This can happen with ANYTHING because we are all big bubbles that I like to refer to as snow globes of emotions living our lives and most people, especially those under age 65 are empathic.  Empathic people can feel other people’s emotions and if they are not very careful they will go through life experiencing things based on emotions that are not all theirs.  I believe that mental illness, addiction, alcoholism, and most of the “disabilities” children are being labeled with these days are stemmed from the human ability to feel other’s emotions and read other’s minds while being completely unaware that we are doing so.
Starting right now if you want to see how sensitive you are to energy and you want to see how it all works I invite you to just say in your head “Higher self I ask that you stay connected to me and make me aware of the energy that should not be in my snow globe and I ask that you remove it immediately so that it does not effect me”.
Then all you have to do is notice what you notice when you go from one place to another running errands or to a friend’s house.  Also, notice how work feels when you are there alone as opposed to when certain people arrive.  Places change with the people that are in them.  If you notice that your mood changes instantly at ANYTIME and that the mood is not going away as the higher self removes the energy it may mean that you are holding onto the energy for some reason.  It is usually because the energy represents something you have personally gone through so your mind wants to solve it and therefore hangs onto it fordear life.  If this is the case rather than experiencing the emotions of that awful break up from 2005 all over again you can do the following: (at the bottom there is a video that walks you though this)
Close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and say in your head: “I am a snow globe.” Imagine that you are the statue in the middle of a snow globe with snowflakes and water swirling all around you.  Feel what it feels like to be in your snow globe then say “I am alone in my snow globe, I am my creator self” and imagine a HUGE ball of bright white or golden light dropping down over you, into your snow globe, down through your head, through your body and out your feet into the center of the earth where anyone or anything that is not you and that is not in alignment with your highest self will be flushed away from you and transmuted into unconditional love using the energy of the earth and the white light above you.  This can take you 30 minutes if you want to make it a meditation or you can do it in 20 seconds when walking into the office.  The key here is the you are becoming aware of the energy around you and learning that you and only you are in control of it and if something or someone has energy around them that makes you feel badly, you can protect yourself and clear yourself regardless of the situation because you are the creator of your own reality!
Now, go about your day and maybe just maybe this week you can make it through with out any arguments or mood swings. haha!  YEAH right, huh?  But hey, let’s give it a shot anyway!

13 Buddha Quotes That Will Put Your Soul At Ease

Siddartha Gautama, otherwise known as Gautama Buddha, or Buddha, was a sage and the philosophical founder of Buddhism. He lived in northeastern India sometime between the sixth and fourth centuries BCE.

“Buddha” is a term meaning “the enlightened or awakened one.” Most accept that Siddartha Gautama was a real person who once walked this planet, but many hesitate to make claims about what exactly his life was like, aside from the stories passed down through the generations.

His words have had a profound impact on many. These are some of our favorites.

“We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.”
“Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others.”

Buddha Quotes



“You only lose what you cling to.”

“The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.”

“Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.”

“Every human being is the author of his own health or disease.”

“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.”

“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.”

“In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true.”

“Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.”


“It is easy to see the faults of others, but difficult to see one’s own faults. One shows the faults of others like chaff winnowed in the wind, but one conceals one’s own faults as a cunning gambler conceals his dice.”

“To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.”


“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.”

“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.”

18 Rules of Living By The Dalai Lama

At the turn of this century, the Dalai Lama issued the following eighteen rules for living.
Of the many problems we face today, some are natural calamities and must be accepted and faced with equanimity. Others, however, are of our own making, created by misunderstanding, and can be corrected. One such type arises from the conflict of ideologies, political or religious, when people fight each other for petty ends, losing sight of the basic humanity that binds us all together as a single human family. We must remember that the different religions, ideologies, and political systems of the world are meant for human beings to achieve happiness. We must not lose sight of this fundamental goal and at no time should we place means above ends; the supremacy of humanity over matter and ideology must always be maintained. 



By far the greatest single danger facing humankind – in fact, all living beings on our planet – is the threat of nuclear destruction. I need not elaborate on this danger, but I would like to appeal to all the leaders of the nuclear powers who literally hold the future of the world in their hands, to the scientists and technicians who continue to create these awesome weapons of destruction, and to all the people at large who are in a position to influence their leaders: I appeal to them to exercise their sanity and begin to work at dismantling and destroying all nuclear weapons. We know that in the event of a nuclear war there will be no victors because there will be no survivors! Is it not frightening just to contemplate such inhuman and heartless destruction? And, is it not logical that we should remove the cause for our own destruction when we know the cause and have both the time and the means to do so? Often we cannot overcome our problems because we either do not know the cause or, if we understand it, do not have the means to remove it. This is not the case with the nuclear threat. ~ Dalai Lama




At the turn of this century, the Dalai Lama issued the following eighteen rules for living.

Rule 1. Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

Rule 2. When you lose, don’t lose the lesson

Rule 3. Follow the three Rs: 1. Respect for self 2. Respect for others 3. Responsibility for all your actions.

Rule 4. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

Rule 5. Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.

Rule 6. Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

Rule 7. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

Rule 8. Spend some time alone every day.

Rule 9. Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.

Rule 10. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

Rule 11. Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you’ll be able to enjoy it a second time.

Rule 12. A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.

Rule 13. In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don’t bring up the past.

Rule 14. Share your knowledge. It’s a way to achieve immortality.

Rule 15. Be gentle with the earth.

Rule 16. Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.

Rule 17. Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.

Rule 18. Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.

What Exactly Is Nirvana?

“One thing and only one thing do I teach, suffering and the cessation of suffering” – Buddha
‘Nirvana’ is one of the most widely used Buddhist words in the world. And while many in the east have a pretty good grasp on what it means, most people in the west have little to no idea what it means at all.
In fact, they largely think it’s the name of the 90’s grunge band! Fantastic band…but…no. Nirvana is the central tenet of Buddhism, the ‘hub’ that holds this powerful and ancient philosophy together.

Liberation

In his first sermon after his enlightenment, the Buddha preached the Four Noble Truths. Very basically, the Truths explain why life stresses and disappoints us, and why we are stuck and struggling like a ‘flame stuck to fuel’. The Buddha also gave us the remedy, and the path to liberation, which is the Eightfold Path.
Nirvana, then, is liberation; it’s the removal of the flame (our essence) from the fuel source (suffering).
But liberation from what?
The answer is “samsara,” which usually is defined as the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth. This is the endless cycle of suffering we are all consciously or unconsciously trying to move away from. Buddha’s teachings are not so much a belief system as it is a practice that enables us to stop hitting the walls of a confined existence.

What Happens Next?

So, once we’re liberated, what happens next? First and foremost, Buddha never defined nirvana as a place; rather, it’s a state of existence.
What Exactly Is Nirvana?

Buddha also said that anything we might say or imagine about nirvana will be wrong because it is so completely different from our ordinary existence. For this reason, it also defies definition, because language is inadequate to define it. Nirvana is beyond space, time, and definition. Pretty crazy right???
The Theravadin scholar Thanissaro Bhikkhu said, “… neither samsara nor nirvana is a place. Samsara is a process of creating places, even whole worlds, (this is called becoming) and then wandering through them (this is called birth). Nirvana is the end of this process.”
So in other words, it’s a return to our natural state of being.

How do We get There?

The path laid out by Buddha is relatively simple, but profound. By following the Eightfold Path with deep meditation, nirvana can come to you while living. This is the promise of Buddha’s teachings.
And while the path isn’t necessarily easy, it’s certainly rewarding — not just for yourself, but others as well.

How to Read Auras – What is the Meaning of Each Color?

Learn all about auras, how to read auras, how to see your aura, aura colors and what each aura color means.


All living things that need oxygen to survive have an aura. They generate a large magnetic energy field that can be sensed, felt and even seen around the physical body. We all can tell when someone doesn’t feel good to us, like they are full of anger or if they really live in their heart and feel deeply. You do not need to be psychic to feel/read an aura.
If a person walks past, very close to you, they may unintentionally steal some of your energy. If someone suddenly reaches out and grabs your arm, they are interrupting the flow of energy around your body. An example of this might be a time when you were talking to someone and you thought they were standing to close to you. You may have even thought to yourself, “They’re in my space,” and then you backed away. Even this slight intrusion into your aura or ‘space’ can interrupt your personal flow of energy and you may feel like you have been slimed.
An aura is usually 3 feet from your physical body, however an incest or rape survivor has an aura about 50 feet around them, which means in a movie theater or a bus/train you sit in their stuff!!! I can clean this for you.
Auras are commonly associated with people. Sometimes we even use them to describe people: “He has an aura about him,” or “She just has a glow about her”. But in fact all living things generate this Explanations of the color in any aurafield of energy. When associated to a person, the aura can provide insight into the spiritual, emotional and physical aspects of the individual.
Life is full of color and like so many other things on your path, color also has meaning. They are representations of messages from your higher self,God, dreams, whatever the label. But you don’t have to be a Metaphysician to understand the importance of color in your life. It exists in every day experiences.
Many people associate the color white with God, pink with love and purple with royalty or spirituality. The following is a brief outline of primary colors and their common interpretation.

What is your impression of the day-to-day of a Buddhist monk? Your visualization may make it appear that the monk-life is a vast departure from modern society, and you’d be pretty close to the truth. However, we can draw inspiration from the way they live their lives.



If you are looking to bring more mindfulness and peace to your days, then we can look to these simple Zen Buddhist-inspired rules to live by, no matter what your spirituality or religion.

One Thing At A Time.shaolin-monk-tips

Take steps, rather than multi-tasking.
For example: when eating, just eat. When bathing, just bathe.
“When walking, walk. When eating, eat.” –  Zen proverb.

Slow and Steady Wins The Race

Now that you’re doing one thing at a time, don’t rush it. Instead, take your time, move slowly, and act deliberately. Focusing like this is surprisingly difficult for someone used to rushing around doing a million things at once. Practice makes perfect, though.

Follow Through.

You’re doing one task slowly and deliberately, now make sure you follow through and finish it before moving on to the next.
If it is impossible, at least try to put away and clean up the unfinished task so that it doesn’t interfere with your next movements.

Do Less.

The Buddhist Monk’s day starts early and is filled with work. However, the task list is not unending. Today has its tasks, and no more. If you are completely filling your day with ‘to-dos,’ you’ll be rushing around from one thing to another without being mindful at all.

Rest.

Now that you’re managing your schedule to allow time for finishing tasks mindfully, try to leave room in between things.
You can rest here, meditate, or even finish something that took a little longer then expected.

Ritual.

To the Zen Buddhist, rituals exist for everything from the sacred to the mundane. Rituals surrounding cleaning are as important as the rituals surrounding meditation. Actions are done because they are important to do, and if they are important enough to take time out of your day, then they are worthy of your entire attention.

Make Time.

Certain times of day in the Monk life are for certain activities.
For example, bathing, working, cleaning and eating all take place in their time to make sure they are done regularly.
You can designate time like this for your own regularly-occurring activities.

Sit.

Sitting meditation (zazen) is vitally important in the life of a Zen Buddhist. Slices of every day are set aside for this practice, and it will teach presence and living from moment to moment.

Smile and Serve.

Monks spend parts of every day in service to others. This teaches humility and helps leave selfishness behind. In the same way, the practices of smiling and kindness help to improve the lives of those around you, and your own.

Meditate While Cooking And Cleaning.

Besides zazen, cooking and cleaning are the next two most important moment of the Zen Buddhist Monk’s day.
Both are good practices in mindfulness. If you find these boring or a chore, try to surround them with meditation and ritual.
Put your mind to them, focus, and do them completely. You may change your mind about these tasks.

Live Simply With Your Necessities.

While we are not Zen Monks, it is good to look at how they live as an example. There is little in their lives which is not necessary – clothing, shelter, utensils, tools, and simple vegetarian food. While extreme, their example allows us to think about what we have that we don’t need, and whether we can jettison some of the excess weight of our possessions.

Live Without.

The other side of the topic above is that if something is unnecessary, you can live without it.
Try to make it a goal to rid yourself of as many unessential things as you can. Remember, it’s up to you to decide what is essential.
So if you have a vast library that you study, this is probably essential to you. If you have a collection that is your passion, this is probably essential.


Even though another person may see that as clutter, it’s not up to them to decide.
The point is keeping what’s important, and ridding yourself of excess weight.
