Meditation Quote 74: “Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

By on August 8, 2014

One day you’re happy and the sky is the limit. Then something happens that throws you off, and you feel like whole world is falling apart.  How do you cope with this?

Feelings have a strange way of making our whole day different.

One single thought, comment, event or atmosphere – and a new feeling is triggered.

Despite of this, we always have the power to not let the feelings affect us. Or at the very least not let them linger.

We do this by returning to our breath, and trying to observe the feelings without judgment.

Without attachment and judgment, the feelings might suddenly not seem all that all-encompassing.

“Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor.”
