You have to voluntarily examine your life, not condemn it, not say this is right or this is wrong but look. When you do look in that way, you will find that you look with eyes that are full of affection—not with condemnation, not with judgement, but with care. You look at yourself with care and therefore with immense affection—and it is only when there is great affection and love that you see the total existence of life.
Be free, live happily, joyously, without any antagonism, without any hate. Then life becomes something quite different. Then life has a meaning, is full of joy and clarity.
Living our life fully and deeply requires courage. If we cannot be happy right now, we need to ask ourselves why. We need to find out what it is. What’s weighing us down or pulling us away from the present moment?
Thich Nhat Hanh
If you light a lamp for somebody, it will also brighten your path.
If you really want peace of mind and success in your endeavours, discard self-importance and your ego.
Compassion is a priceless jewel. Care about others at all times. If you cannot help others, at least do no harm.
