Be Who You Want to Be

Happiness is possible when you are capable of doing the things and being the things you want to do and to be.

When we walk for the sake of walking,

when we sit for the sake of sitting,

when we drink for the sake of drinking tea,

we don’t do it for something or someone else.

Awakening means to see that truth—

that you want to know how to enjoy,

how to live deeply,

in a very simple way.

You don’t want to waste your time anymore.

Cherish the time that you are given.

–Thich Nhat Hanh, from Answers from the Heart (Parallax Press)
