Day #732:Becoming Aware

“In every religious tradition there is a practice of devotion and a practice of transformation.

“Devotion means trusting more in ourselves and in the path we follow. Transformation means to practice the things this path imposes on us.”

“When you say: ‘I am determined to study medicine,’ this sentence exercises an impact on your life even before you register at a school.

“You see this step as something positive and want to advance in its direction. The same happens with any religious tradition.”

“The key is to be fully aware of your actions. When you swallow a cup of water deeply, with all your ardor, illumination is present in its initial form. Being illuminated always means having clear vision concerning something.”

Adapted from the book of Thich Nhat Hanh (Living Buddha, Living Christ):
