Non-violent Teaching starting with yourself.

Thich Nhat Hanh gems
The teaching of the Buddha is non-violent.
If there is irritation you simply recognise you have irritation.
You allow irritation to be there and embrace it as if it is a baby.
You do not judge, you do not force, and you do not condemn them. You only look at your irritation with compassion.
I go back to my body with non-violence, with care, with compassion.

When the sunshine falls on the vegetation, the vegetation itself becomes green.
~Thich Nhat Hanh
