“Mindfulness teaching says to make every step be for freedom; every breath for peace. Knowing that when we walk, we can walk for freedom, when we breathe, we can breathe peace into our community—that’s power. This teaching tells us that there’s always a way that we can make a difference. When we do, we nurture our imagination and creativity, which gives us many more choices as to how we can move forward, both as individuals and as a people.”

Thich Nhat Hanh, from Together We Are One

“We need to find a way to have peace
in the streets,
a way to make ourselves
one community.”

Thich Nhat Hanh,
from Together We Are One

“Aware of the suffering caused by unmindful speech and the inability to listen to others, I am committed to cultivating loving speech and compassionate listening in order to relieve suffering and to promote reconciliation and peace in myself and among other people, ethnic and religious groups, and nations.”

Thich Nhat Hanh,

“Knowing that words can create happiness or suffering, I am committed to speaking truthfully using words that inspire confidence, joy, and hope. When anger is manifesting in me, I am determined not to speak.”

“The practice of loving speech and compassionate listening is crucial to bringing about reconciliation and deep, true communication. In our relationships, we may still have wrong perceptions, and our beloved one may also have a lot of wrong perceptions. If we cannot communicate, we can’t help each other remove our wrong perceptions.”

Thich Nhat Hanh,
from Together We Are One

“When we use loving speech, we can better communicate our insight, our ideas to the other person. We can tell him, tell her, everything in our heart. The other person needs to understand us better, so we must use the kind of language that he or she can accept, language that has no blame, no accusation. We have the duty to tell him or tell her what is in our heart, but without judging or bitterness.”

Thich Nhat Hanh,
from Together We Are One
