Thich Nhat Hanh ~ The Buddha & Enlightenment


The Buddha is not a God. He is a human being like us. And the word Buddha means a person who is awake. And if we practice awakening we become a Buddha. When you practice breathing in and out, your body and mind come together, become one, and you are there in the present moment. When you are mindful of what is going on, you are aware, and you are enlightened. Practice breathing in, I'm aware that I have good eyes, breathing out I smile to my eyes. That is awareness. That is mindfulness of having good eyes, but that is also enlightenment.
