Happiness | Thich Nhat Hanh
16 posts | 6 read | 6 to read
Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh's key teaching is that through mindfulness, we can learn to live in the present moment and develop a sense of peace. Accessible to those new to Buddhist teachings as well as more experienced practitioners, Happiness is the only book that collects all practices adapted and developed by Thich Nhat Hanh in his more than 60 years as a Buddhist monk and teacher. With sections on Daily Practice, Relationships, Physical Practices, Mindful Eating, and Practicing with Children, Happiness is a comprehensive guide to living our daily lives with full awareness, whether we are working, eating, parenting, driving, walking, or simply sitting and breathing. Thich Nhat Hanh says, ''Enjoy your practice with a relaxed and gentle attitude, with an open mind and receptive heart.... Joy and happiness are available to you in the here and now.''

Sometimes happiness means matching your flavoured water to your manicure.

What‘s an odd thing that brings you happiness?

Happiness is... starting out the week with new art supplies and paper products from @elkeo #LitsyPenPals 💜💜💜💜💜 Thank you, Elke! Love them! (And that cat card is a winner!)

elkeo_TheBookDragon So glad it arrived! Was funny that my postman wasn't immediately sure if I needed a customs form or if you are part of the US 😆 #51ststate 2y
Mimi28 @elkeo Mine was just the opposite! I mailed them a thank you card and thought I would have to pay extra postage. The clerk said - No, just one regular stamp, it's still the U.S., lol 2y
britt_brooke @elkeo My postal worker wasn't sure either. 🤦🏼‍♀️ The shipping ended up being inexpensive, but it took 2 weeks to get to PR from TN. 2y
4thhouseontheleft @britt_brooke that's interesting, because mine only took a few days to get from NC to PR. I think @BookishMarginalia got it around the same time as a package I sent to my other #litsypenpal in TN! 2y

Fall in, Littens! I need your help. My wonderful boss recently lost her beloved dog to cancer. She's looking for book recs to help ease her mind. Her only parameter is "not sad." So, what are some of your favorite light, funny reads?

And hey, thanks!

LitLogophile Light, funny, fun, distracting .... 😁 3y
DGRachel The early Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich are fluffy fun, with some LOL moments. 3y

Finished this today. Simple truths. Good advice for raising children and dealing with conflict. I would prefer a physical book because there were instructions for activities that I would like to have for reference.I have read many spiritual books and this seemed more appropriate for a beginner. So, a Pick for a beginner. And, while I have deep respect for the author, a So-So for me.

Soubhiville I love these little MP3 audiobooks! My last town's library had a huge collection of them. My current city has tons of branches, but they only have cd audiobooks. Haven't listened to this particular one. 3y
DivineDiana @Soubhiville I love them too! And I am fortunate that my library does have a collection. They are so handy! 3y

For #funfridayphoto here is my husband, who makes me so very happy. He is kind, compassionate, loves all, and funny. This photo was taking during the Air Force Marathon. My husband found out two days before the race that he was in remission!! He still wanted to run the race to show he kicked cancer's butt!! He loves that I'm a bookworm & convinced me to leave a career I disliked so I could finish my English degree. He is really quite wonderful.

LauraBeth I ❤️ every single thing about this. And I am sure he also counts himself as blessed to be married to you 😀 3y
