Imagine you are sending light out all around you. Thich Nhat Hanh. Positive Inspirational Quote

" Imagine you are sending light out all around you. All your words, thoughts and actions are going in many directions. If you say something kind, your kind words go in many directions and you yourself go with them. We are transforming and continuing in a 
different form at every moment" Thich Nhat Hanh

I love these words from the wonderful Thich Nhat Hanh. The words we speak are important and we should choose them carefully. If we speak kind words to people those kind words will spread like a ripple on a lake throughout the universe in many directions. So speak kind words whenever you can. Shine your light, let everyone see it. 

Thich Nhat Hanh has written many wonderful books one of which is 
Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life

"Lucidly and beautifully written, PEACE IS EVERY STEP contains commentaries and meditations, personal anecdotes and stories from Nhat Hanh's experiences as a peace activist, teacher, and community leader. It begins where the reader already is - in the kitchen, office, driving a car, walking in a park - and shows how deep meditative presence is available now. Nhat Hanh provides exercises to increase our awareness of our own body and mind through conscious breathing, which can bring immediate joy and peace. Nhat Hanh also shows how to be aware of relationships with others and of the world around us, its beauty and also its pollution and injustices. The deceptively simple practices of PEACE IN EVERY STEP encourage the reader to work for peace in the world as he or she continues to work on sustaining inner peace by turning the 'mindness' into the mindful.

'This is a very worthwhile book. It can change individual lives and the life of our society. ' H. H. the Dalai Lama."

Enjoy shining your light, bright blessings to you, Alison
