A Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh on anger, breathing, and fire

It is best if we do not listen to or look at the person whom we consider to be the cause of our anger. Like a fireman, we have to pour water on the blaze first and not waste time looking for the one who set the house on fire. "Breathing in, I know that I am angry. Breathing out, I know that I must put all my energy into caring for my anger." So we avoid thinking about the other person, and we refrain from doing or saying anything as long as our anger persists. If we put all our mind into observing our anger, we will avoid doing any damage that we may regret later.

A Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh on meditation, present, and breathing

Breathing in I calm my body.  Breathing out I smile. Dwelling in the present moment, I know this is a wonderful moment!
