Compassion Is A Verb

Walk as if you are kissing 
the Earth with your feet.
              Thich Nhat Hanh

Expression in a dear face

Sometimes your joy is
the source of your smile, but 
sometimes your smile can 
be the source of your joy.
Thich Nhat Hanh

If you love someone, the greatest gift 
you can give them is your presence. . .
Compassion is a verb. . .
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.
             Thich Nhat Hanh

Letting go gives us freedom, 
and freedom is the only condition for happiness. 
If, in our heart, we still cling to anything 
- anger, anxiety, or possessions - 
we cannot be free. . . . 
People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. 
Out of a fear of the unknown, 
they prefer suffering that is familiar.
               Thich Nhat Hanh
