Thought I would share the following note I just received:
|The Now Effect Community! How this Moment Can Change the Rest of Your Life
Right now as you’re reading these words, one of the greatest mindfulness teachers to grace this planet is passing away. It may very well be that Thich Nhat Hanh has already passed as you read these.
If you’ve been a reader of this blog or any of my work you may know how much he has influenced my work and my life. Thich Nhat Hanh or Thay as his followers call him is/was a sort of prophet of awakening and hope.
He said, “Because you are alive, anything is possible.”
He reminded us of the sacred ground we live on and how to walk on it:
He reminded us of wisdom and compassion, even with the difficult people in our lives:
He shared with us the simple yet powerful connection of our bodies to our joy and sorrow:
He conveyed to reality of our authentic beauty and of radical self-acceptance:
And the miracle of being alive…
And he gives us the simple wisdom to go forward:
As Thay leaves us in this physical form, the reality is he can never leave us. I know for me, he lives deeply in my heart and mind. He is transmitted through my writings and teachings and in this way he transcends time and death.
Take a moment to pause and if you’ve been touched by him, express your love and gratitude. If you feel so moved please express it in the comments below.
With a deep heart (and a smile for Thay),
Elisha Goldstein, PhD
