All Is A Miracle

“People usually consider walking on water

or in thin air a miracle.

But I think the real miracle

is not to walk either on water or in thin air,

but to walk on earth.

Every day we are engaged in a miracle

which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds,

green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child –

– our own two eyes.

All is a miracle.”

 

 

       Thích Nhất Hạnh

“The source of love is deep in us

and we can help others realize a lot of happiness.

One word, one action,

one thought

can reduce another person’s suffering

and bring that person joy.”

 

        Thích Nhất Hạnh
