Beautiful Quote from Thich Nhat Hanh

I recently attended a guided relaxation class held by Beth Freshi, a life coach at A Time for Expression LLC, and enjoyed the class quite a bit.  Often, when I am doing relaxation or meditation I am reminded of one of my favorite quotes.  I think this passage so nicely describes meditation, its purpose, process and value.

Sitting meditation is very healing.  We realize we can just be with whatever is within us- our pain, anger, and irritation, or our joy, love and peace.  We are with whatever is there without being carried away by it.  Let it come, let it stay, then let it go.  No need to push, to oppress, or to pretend our thoughts are not there.   Observe the thoughts and images of our mind with an accepting and loving eye.  We are free to be still and calm despite the storms that might arise in us.
