 The man Martin Luther King Jr. called "an apostle of peace and nonviolence" has been a teacher,writer and vocal opponent of war. Here, Thich Nhat Hanh shares a few words of wisdom.~ "Freedom is not given to us by anyone; we have to cultivate it ourselves. It is a daily practice... Noone can prevent you from being aware of each step you take or each breath in and breath out." ~~ "People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefersuffering that is familiar." ~~ "Enlightenment is always there. Small enlightenment will bring great enlightenment. If you breathein and are aware that you are alivethat you can touch the miracle of being alivethen that is a kindof enlightenment." ~~ "Many people are alive but don't touch the miracle of being alive." ~~ "It is possible to live happily in the here and now. So many conditions of happiness are availablemore than enough for you to be happy right now. You don't have to run into the future in order to getmore." ~~ "People suffer because they are caught in their views. As soon as we release those views, we arefree and we don't suffer anymore." ~~ "Mindfulness helps you go home to the present. And every time you go there and recognize acondition of happiness that you have, happiness comes." ~~ "Life is available only in the present. That is why we should walk in such a way that every step canbring us to the here and the now." ~~ "When you love someone, the best thing you can offer is your presence. How can you love if you arenot there?" ~~ "To be loved means to be recognized as existing." ~
