get elephant's newsletter To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh I was visiting a friend in New York City this past weekend as we discussed various elements of all things spiritual. Discussion of teachers, techniques, paths and so forth culminated into some personal and candid sharing with one another. As I went to sleep in my friends cozy guest bed, I reflected on those dark times and how truly transformative the following technique taught by Thich Nhat Hanh has been in turning my life around. It’s extremely simple and can be done anytime, anywhere and in virtually any circumstance. The following is my translation and is not verbatim. So with that being said, I’ve broken it down to seven simple steps for you. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Through bringing our attention to the image of our painful thoughts and emotions, and tending to it with an open heart, we’re doing the most natural thing we can—expressing love. So that’s the practice.
