Thich Nhat Hanh at Hue City, Vietnam (2007)

I’m not a huge fan of Oprah’s, since she has helped thrust people into stardom like Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz but I thought this was a good interview with Thich Nhat Hanh.  And it’s the transcript, not a clip.  It is 9 webpages but worth it.

Take a lot at his comments on happiness:

Happiness is the cessation of suffering. (my italics.) Well-being. For instance, when I  practice this exercise of breathing in, I’m aware of my eyes; breathing out, I  smile to my eyes and realize that they are still in good condition. There is a  paradise of form and colors in the world. And because you have eyes still in  good condition, you can get in touch with the paradise. So when I become aware  of my eyes, I touch one of the conditions of happiness. And when I touch it,  happiness comes.”

finds the light, so when we are

in sorrow then this light is

nearest to all of us.
