I Have Arrived, I am Home | Thich Nhat Hanh, 2014 07 20

  • 0:00 -
    I have arrived, I am home.
  • Not Synced
    It's very simple,
    but that is the practice.
  • Not Synced
    And walk in such a way that you arrive,
    and you feel like home.
  • Not Synced
    You do not walk like a sleep walker
    anymore,
  • Not Synced
    you are walking as a free person,
    you are walking like a Buddha.
  • Not Synced
    To be a Buddha and walking on Earth
    is possible.
  • Not Synced
    And Buddha is a man who is awake,
    who can be in the here and the now,
  • Not Synced
    who can enjoy the present moment.
  • Not Synced
    You can be a Buddha,
    walking on this beautiful planet.
  • Not Synced
    Is very important that you feel at home
    in the here and the now,
  • Not Synced
    only when you feel at home
    in the here and the now
  • Not Synced
    that you really have peace.
  • Not Synced
    Without peace, there's no happiness.
    Enjoy.
  • Not Synced
    Peace is the absence of conflict.
  • Not Synced
    When you deny the here and the now,
    when you are not satisfied with yourself,
  • Not Synced
    what is there when you are
    searching for something else,
  • Not Synced
    you are not at peace with yourself.
  • Not Synced
    When you breathe in and you bring
    your mind back to your body,
  • Not Synced
    you make peace within mind and body.
  • Not Synced
    Very often, in the early life,
    you left your body alone.
  • Not Synced
    When you spend two hours
    with your computer,
  • Not Synced
    you forget completely
    that you have a body.
  • Not Synced
    In that moment, body and mind
    are not together,
  • Not Synced
    we are not truly alive,
  • Not Synced
    our body and mind
    are away from each other.
  • Not Synced
    So, breathing in mindfully
    you ride your in breath
  • Not Synced
    and you go home to yourself.
  • Not Synced
    You bring your mind home
    to your body,
  • Not Synced
    and eternally, you are fully present
    in the here and the now.
  • Not Synced
    And that's only two seconds,
    three seconds for breathing in,
  • Not Synced
    to bring the mind home to your body.
  • Not Synced
    And there, mind and body together,
    you are established in the here and the now
  • Not Synced
    and you get in touch with the wonders
    of life.
  • Not Synced
    That's simple enough.
  • Not Synced
    So, every breath you take,
    every step you make,
  • Not Synced
    should be able to bring you home
    to the here and the now,
  • Not Synced
    that is the basic practice.
  • Not Synced
    And you don't have to struggle,
    to force yourself to do that,
  • Not Synced
    because breathing in like that
    can be very pleasant,
  • Not Synced
    and making a step like that
    can be very pleasant,
  • Not Synced
    there is no violence, no force,
    just awaken, a wake up from a long dream,
  • Not Synced
    from a long sleep.
  • Not Synced
    You wake up to the fact that life
    is available in the here and the now,
  • Not Synced
    that you are alive, of the wonders
    of life in you and around you,
  • Not Synced
    that you can enjoy being alive,
    right here and right now.
  • Not Synced
    And you have more than enough
    conditions in order to be happy,
  • Not Synced
    so that is insight, that is mindfulness
    and concentration.
  • Not Synced
    That back the value of your breath
    and you step;
  • Not Synced
    a breath made like that,
    a step made like that can bring you
  • Not Synced
    a lot of freedom and happiness.
  • Not Synced
    I have arrived, I am home.
  • Not Synced
    You feel comfortable in your home,
    your true home is not in Germany,
  • Not Synced
    in Holland, in Singapore, your true home
    is the there and the now,
  • Not Synced
    where you can touch the wonder of life,
    your ancestors are available
  • Not Synced
    in the here and the now.
  • Not Synced
    I have arrived, I am home,
    in the here and the now.
  • Not Synced
    The here and the now
    is where I arrived,
  • Not Synced
    is my true home.
  • Not Synced
    I am solid, I am free.
  • Not Synced
    This is not wishful thinking,
    solidity is what you cultivate by walking.
  • Not Synced
    Every step helps you cultivate
    your solidity.
  • Not Synced
    To be solid means to be established,
    to be in the here and the now.
  • Not Synced
    The past cannot pull you away,
    the future cannot pull you away,
  • Not Synced
    you are established in the here
    and the now,
  • Not Synced
    solidly established
    in the here and the now.
  • Not Synced
    And with one step, breathing in,
    you can contemplate that solidity,
  • Not Synced
    and you are free, I am solid,
    I am free,
  • Not Synced
    you are free because the past
    and the future,
  • Not Synced
    your projects, your sorrows
    cannot pull you away anymore.
  • Not Synced
    So, while walking you can cultivate
    more solidity and freedom,
  • Not Synced
    and that has the power to heal you,
  • Not Synced
    and to bring you happiness.
  • Not Synced
    So that's one song I like to memorize
    and to practice walking or breathing,
  • Not Synced
    "I have arrived, I am home,
    in the here, in the now.
  • Not Synced
    I am solid, I am free
    in the ultimate, I go.
  • Not Synced
    In the ultimate means that
    you see that
  • Not Synced
    this physical body of yours
    is not the only body you have.
  • Not Synced
    You have a cosmic body,
  • Not Synced
    and you have to recognize
    your cosmic body,
  • Not Synced
    and you look into your physical body,
    you see your cosmic body,
  • Not Synced
    the air, the water, the heat, the soil,
  • Not Synced
    and you are made of stars.
  • Not Synced
    You know very well that
    without the sunshine,
  • Not Synced
    there would be no life on Earth.
  • Not Synced
    So you are made of sunshine.
  • Not Synced
    And the sun is a star,
  • Not Synced
    is the one of the biggest stars
    in the whole galaxy,
  • Not Synced
    and that star is very close,
  • Not Synced
    and because the sun is there,
    life on Earth is possibile.
  • Not Synced
    So you are a sun of the sun,
    a dot of the sun,
  • Not Synced
    you can call the sun "father sun",
  • Not Synced
    and you are a daughter of Mother
    Earth,
  • Not Synced
    a son of Mother Earth,
    you are made of stars.
  • Not Synced
    And you have, if you look deeply
    you know that,
  • Not Synced
    the physical body is not the only body
    you have,
  • Not Synced
    you still have a cosmic body.
  • Not Synced
    Suppose you contemplate a wave
    that is born of the ocean,
  • Not Synced
    that wave has come from the ocean,
  • Not Synced
    and she will go home to the ocean
    in order to be reborn again
  • Not Synced
    as another wave.
  • Not Synced
    So the wave has the wave body
    and also the ocean body,
  • Not Synced
    and the moment where she realizes
    that she has an ocean body,
  • Not Synced
    she'll lose all her fear,
  • Not Synced
    fear of birth and of death.
