Practicing Mindfulness With The Guidance Of The Master Thich Nhat Hanh

by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
its not news for us that humanity is collectively in the process of awakening into the Golden Age of Aquarius, and that this transformation is leading us through a lot of changes and realizations these days. One of the techniques that can help us all in the development of healthy new human relationships and flowing creations, is the practice of mindful behavior. Meditation is a wonderful way of learning how to listen to the inner guidance of our higher awareness and to enable us for actions that lead to divine manifestations. Below I have gathered some thoughts of the Master Thich Nhat Hanh about that topic. Enjoy!

This body is not me.
I am not limited by this body.
I am life without boundaries.
I have never been born,
and I have never died.

Look at the ocean and the sky filled with stars,
manifestations from my wondrous true mind.

Since before time, I have been free.
Birth and death are only doors through which we pass,
sacred thresholds on our journey.
Birth and death are a game of hide-and-seek.

So laugh with me,
hold my hand,
let us say good-bye,
say good-bye, to meet again soon.

We meet today.
We will meet again tomorrow.
We will meet at the source every moment.
We meet each other in all forms of life.
Thich Nhat Hanh

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 to walk on earth. Every day 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.
Thich Nhat HanhThe problem that faces us is the problem of awakening. What we lack is not an ideology or doctrine that will save the world. What we lack is mindfulness of what we are, of what our situation really is. We need to wake up in order to rediscover our human sovereignty. We are riding a horse that is running out of control. The way of salvation is a new culture in which human beings are encouraged to rediscover their deepest nature.
Thich Nhat Hanh

From time to time, to remind ourselves to relax and be peaceful, we may wish to set aside some time for a retreat, a day of mindfulness, when we can walk slowly, smile, drink tea with a friend, enjoy being together as if we are the happiest people on Earth.
Thich Nhat Hanh

Root out the violence in your life, and learn to live compassionately and mindfully. Seek peace. When you have peace within, real peace with others is possible.
Thich Nhat Hanh

To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself. When you are born a lotus flower, be a beautiful lotus flower, don’t try to be a magnolia flower. If you crave acceptance and recognition and try to change yourself to fit what other people want you to be, you will suffer all your life. True happiness and true power lie in understanding yourself, accepting yourself, having confidence in yourself.
Thich Nhat Hanh

Through my love for you, I want to express my love for the whole cosmos, the whole of humanity, and all beings. By living with you, I want to learn to love everyone and all species. If I succeed in loving you, I will be able to love everyone and all species on Earth. This is the real message of love.
Thich Nhat Hanh

The kingdom of God is available to you in the here and the now. But the question is whether you are available to the kingdom. Our practice is to make ourselves ready for the kingdom so that it can manifest in the here and the now. You don’t need to die in order to enter the kingdom of heaven. In fact, you have to be truly alive in order to do so.
Thich Nhat Hanh
Dear Ones, I hope this little selection of quotes will inspire you to develop more mindful living for yourself and for the oneness we experience in the Golden Age of Aquarius. Allow me to close this article with even more words from the master Thich Nhat Hanh: if we are peaceful, if we are happy, we can smile, and everyone in our family, our entire society, will benefit from our peace.
Love and Mindful Living!!
Edith
