I recently read the book 'Being Peace' by Thich Nhat Hanh. I found the book captivating and compelling. Thich Nhat Hanh is a Buddhist monk and a peace activist. His words in this book were inspiring. Being Peace is a book that shows average people how they can achieve peace in their lives. I enjoyed this book for many reasons, while this brilliant man gave you steps on how to find your inner peace he told you about his life, which i found intriguing.
Thich Nhat Hanh showed me that no matter how many bad things happen you can always find peace in the simplest things. It is easier to find peace through breath. If you take a little time out of every to dedicate to noticing your breath you are on your way to being peace. "Do we need to make a special effort to enjoy the beauty of the blue sky? Do we have to practice to be able to enjoy it? No, we just enjoy it. Each second, each minute of our lives can be like this. Wherever we are, anytime we have the capacity to enjoy the sunshine, the presence of each other, even the sensation of our breathing." -Thich Nhat Hanh
