Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh, one of the world's leading spiritual teachers, is a man at great peace even as he predicts the possible collapse of civilisation within 100 years as a result of runaway climate change.

Thay, as he is known, says it is possible to be at peace if you pierce through our false reality, which is based on the idea of life and death, to touch the ultimate dimension in Buddhist thinking, in which energy cannot be created or destroyed.

Cultivating Gratitude

Gratitude, it is a word that is used often, and more often than not, it is used in a very negative way. It is often used to point out a failing, a failure to make someone else feel good about themselves and what they have just done. We do not hear the word being used in a more positive supportive way.
