Thich Nhat Hanh

We have to understand in order to be of help.
We all have pain, but we tend to suppress it because
we don't want it to come up to our living room.
The most important thing is that we need to be
understood. We need someone to be able to
listen to us and to understand us.
Then, we will suffer less.
-Thich Nhat Hanh

It’s so simple. Like all of things he writes.
And so true.
And so helpful.
Today, I’m going up to the YMCA of the Rockies to start a five-day retreat with Thich Nhat Hanh and the nuns and monks of his spiritual centers.

I have a lot to learn.
