Been learning about Thich Nhat Hanh, the Buddhist monk and mindfulness teacher. His podcasts are incredible, so soothing and calming, explain so much. Inspired by his teachings, my partner and I found a sangha (community that meditates together) in our city, and it has been a source of great peace and happiness, even during covid times, during which it continued online. It begins with meditation, then a reading from Thich Nhat Hanh's books, then a time for sharing. Hearing the stories and experiences of others helped to relieve some of our feelings of isolation, and helped us to know that others suffer just as we do, in different bodies, different situations, but similar feelings and experiences. Been feeling really connected and loved lately. Has anyone else had similar experiences with a sangha?
We are the change we wish to see in the world. We nurture the world we wish to see with every action, word, thought, and breath. Kiss the ground with every step.
Be reasonable. You can't destroy everything. Where would you sit? How would you read a tiny ad?
