02 May Teachings about Love
Posted at 08: 03h in Buddhism, Introduction to Buddhism, Thich Nhat Hanh
Every human being wants to love and be loved. As Master Thich Nhat Hanh says, our hearts can dry up if we don't have someone to love. Only true love makes happiness possible for us and for others. This feeling has the power to pacify any situation and give a deep meaning to life. When we love, we stop being a source of suffering and become reservoirs of joy and vitality that can benefit everyone around us. But what must we do to cultivate the seeds of love that are within us? Thich Nhat Hanh guides us to start with practices that build self-esteem, mindful listening, and personal renewal. Using their simple methods and training, we learn to deal with negative feelings such as anger, inattention and jealousy.
