Came across a very nice book this morning by Thich Nhat Hanh (a Vietnamese Buddhist Zen). Yet to start reading it. But before that, I’m sharing a pick from the book as ‘preview’:
“Our society is founded on a very limited dentition of power, namely wealth, professional success, fame, physical strength, military might, and political control. My dear friends, I suggest that there is another kind of power, a greater power: the power to be happy right in the present moment, free from addiction, fear, despair, discrimination, anger, and ignorance. This power is the birthright of every human being, whether celebrated or unknown, rich or poor, strong or week.”
- from The Art of Power
