Meditation, Mindfulness, Miracles & More...

Three Quotes by the Loving, Gentle Vietnamese Buddhist Monk, Thich Nhat Hanh...

Live by these words and your dreams will rise like steam up off hot pavement. Dreams come from peace. Dreams come from awareness. Dreams come from kindness. Dreams are living miracles and perfectly ordinary...

"To meditate does not mean to fight with a problem. To meditate means to observe. Your smile proves it. It proves that you are being gentle with yourself, that the sun of awareness is shining in you, that you have control of your situation. You are yourself, and you have acquired some peace."

"When we are mindful, deeply in touch with the present moment, our understanding of what is going on deepens, and we begin to be filled with acceptance, joy, peace and love."

“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.”

Meditate, Be Mindful, and Watch
Your Long Held Dreams Appear...
