Living Meditations – Day 35 – Understanding

Posted on March 4, 2012 by


 Thich Nhat Hanh, Buddhist teacher says, “When you understand, you cannot help but love.  Practice looking at all living beings with the eyes of compassion.”

Today:  When I find myself disagreeing with someone, I will focus on understanding what they are saying – and why.  I will listen compassionately to them, with a silent thought of love, and tell them what I understand them to be saying.  With empathy, I will say clearly and quietly what I believe to be true.
