Dear *[FNAME]*:
The secret to happiness is finding the perfect balance between desire and gratitude.

What does your heart yearn for? What makes you so grateful you want to do cartwheels?

Smack dab in the middle of those two lies happiness.

Dear *[FNAME]*:
Love Sees Clearly

Boundless love, in contrast to clinging and attachment, is the wish for everyone everywhere to have happiness and its causes. It banishes hatred. Love sees everything without distortion.

Dear *[FNAME]*:
Buddha’s answer in the Discourse on Happiness, when he was asked:

“Many gods and men are eager to know what are the greatest blessings which bring about a peaceful and happy life. Please, Tathagata, will you teach us?”

And the Buddha replied with 13 blessings, one of which was:

“To persevere and be open to change, and to have regular contact with monks and nuns, and to fully participate in Dharma discussions – this is the greatest happiness.”

– Buddha

Dear *[FNAME]*:
Testing the Truth

So what is the test of truth? The Buddha offers a simple formula: Test things in terms of cause and effect. Whatever is unskillful, leading to harm and ill, should be abandoned; whatever is skillful, leading to happiness and peace, should be pursued.

– Larry Rosenberg, “The Right to Ask Questions “

Dear *[FNAME]*:
Forget Happiness

Forget Happiness
The pursuit of happiness for its own sake is a fool’s errand. As a goal it is frivolous and unrealistic–frivolous because happiness is a transient state dependent on many conditions, and unrealistic because life is unpredictable and pain may arise at any time.

– Ken McLeod, ” Forget Happiness “

Dear *[FNAME]*:
What the Buddha Never Said

When the Buddha speaks, it is said, he always intends his words to lead to the welfare and happiness of the hearers. But his words are not always tied to the theme of “suffering and its cessation.” To insist on confining them to this topic is to drastically narrow the range of the dharma.

– Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi, “‘I Teach Only Suffering and the End of Suffering'”

Dear *[FNAME]*:
This water’s shape is round or square according to the container that holds it.
In the spring warmth, it is liquid; in the winter cold, it is solid.
When its path is open, it flows.
When its path is obstructed, it stands quiet.
How vast it is, yet its source is so small it is difficult to find.
How wonderful it is in its streams, which flow endlessly.
In the jade rivulets, the footprints of dragons remain.
In the deep pond, water holds the bright halo of the autumn moon.
On the tip of the king’s pen, water becomes the compassion of clemency.
On the willow branch, it becomes the clear fresh balm of compassion.Only one drop of the water of compassion is needed and the Ten Directions are all purified.
“Verses of Consecration” from “Chanting of the Heart” by Thich Nhat Hanh

“There is a wrong understanding of Mindfulness-they may believe that mindfulness in an instrument that can help business men get more money and the military to kill better. That is why if you have not seen the seven other elements in the path of Mindfulness, you have not seen Mindfulness, and that is not Right Mindfulness.” The other seven that he
was referring to (as shown on the white board): Right View, Right Thinking, Right Speech, Right Action, Right Livelihood, Right Concentration, and Right Diligence. “In the Buddha’s lifetime, he taught about the Five Precepts (ways of living) which grew out of this 8-Fold Path. And out of his Teaching, you can live happily in the Here and the Now if you practice these 5 Mindful Trainings (Precepts).

“We have seen that one person can bring liberation and healing to thousands, even millions of people. Each one of us, whether a factory worker, a politician, a waitress, businessperson, an entertainer, or a father coaching a soccer game, shares this deep desire. But it is important to remember that to realize this wonderful ambition we must first take care of ourselves. To bring happiness to others, we must be happiness. And this is why we always train ourselves to first take care of our own bodies and minds. Only when we are solid can we be our best and take good care of our loved ones.”
Thich Nhat Hanh, The Art of Power

I have noticed that people are dealing too much with the negative, with what is wrong. They do not touch enough on what is not wrong. . . . Why not try the other way, to look into the patient and to see positive things, to just touch those things and make them bloom?

– Thich Nhat Hanh, “Interbeing with Thich Nhat Hanh: An Interview”

    Dear *[FNAME]*:
    7 Rules of Life
    1. Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present.

    2. What others think of you is none of your business.

    3. Time heals almost everything, give it time.

    4. Don’t compare your life to others and don’t judge them. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

    5. Stop thinking too much, it’s alright not to know the answers. They will come to you when you least expect it.

    6. No one is in charge of your happiness, except you.

    7. Smile. You don’t own all the problems in the world.
