Quote of the Day

“Enlightenment is always there.  Small enlightenment will bring great enlightenment.  If you breathe in and are aware that you are alive—that you can touch the miracle of being alive—then that is a kind of enlightenment.  Many people are alive but don't touch the miracle of being alive.”

– Thich Nhat Hanh
