When we know the art of how to suffer, we suffer much less.

Thích Nhất Hạnh

Introduction

Worrying is an easy option. We sometimes find ourselves plodding through tasks, planning for a distant, imaginary, better tomorrow. There is no destination in life. It is simply an experience that should be enjoyed. In the grand scheme of things, regrets, remorse, and worries are only the product of one's thoughts.

Thích Nhất Hạnh was a Vietnamese Buddhist monk and author. He became politically relevant as a peace activist in the Vietnamese-American war and remained active in international relations until his death in 2022.

Published in 2017, The Art of Living gathers Buddhist principles that can improve one's life, even in modern times. By focusing on immersing oneself in the present and accepting one's fate in a chaotic and ever-changing universe, happiness and peace can be found in even the most menial tasks.
