Quote of the Day: Thich Nhat Hanh & Update from Plum Village

Mid-afternoon stroll in the late autumn

Mid-afternoon stroll in the late autumn

“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.”
~ Thich Nhat Hanh


A reminder of the blessing we each have been given which is the doorway – the bridge – between our bodies and our spirits.

Spend some time with your breath, harness it, and learn to be the commander of the chariot which is your life and your destiny.

You are the creator of all that is manifest around you – and your breath is the key to harnessing that power.

As an update to the tribute post I did for Thich Nhat Hanh last week, Plum Village reports that he is recovering slowly but doing well.

Please let us all continue to keep Thay in our hearts and minds as we choose to embrace our lives and its situations with compassion in his honour.

Have a lovely Tuesday, xo
