        • Thich Nhat Hanh - "The Good News of Oak Leaves Falling"

          In the talk, Thay speaks in Vietnamese. To listen to the English translation by Sister Chan Khong, listen to only the right earphone, or adjust the balance of your speakers toward the right. "On the moon, now, there is no flower, no oak tree, no cloud. On our planet we have all these things. Every time I go out for walking meditation, I feel so happy to step on the oak leaves, to see the tiny stream by my hermitage. Everything is so beautiful. We can see that in the entire universe there is not another planet so beautiful. We are so lucky. Every day, though, we live on this planet, but we don't realize how lucky we are. I wonder if the fish in the pond can see that beauty, the bird flying in the beautiful empty space, the deer in the field browsing. Do they know? But we, we know. Human beings, before, we were apes. We walked with four limbs. Then, at a certain moment, we stood up. Instead of having an ape's name, we then had the name "Homo erectus". We could use our two limbs in order to do things. Eventually we became "Homo sapiens", humans who know. When we are mindful, we can call ourselves "Homo conscius." We enjoy the manifestation of all these gifts in nature. This is mindfulness: being aware of what is going on. When we get in touch with what is beautiful, we transform the anguish in us into joy, happiness, and love."
