  1. I have a deep respect for Thich Nhat Hanh…and maybe the context of the quote would shed more meaning… but I am having trouble understanding and agreeing with his statement. I want to say that if that one person is yourself.. you are AOK. If that one person is someone else, I do not believe that we have the power to make anyone happy. We don’t create other people’s feelings. Am I missing another intention of the quote?


    1. Agreed and completely understood! Here you go…

      “When you first fall in love and you feel attached to the other person that is not yet real love. Real love means loving kindness and compassion, the kind of love that does not have any conditions. You form a community of two in order to practice love – taking care of each other, helping your partner blossom, and making happiness something real in that small community. Through your love for each other, through learning the art of making one person happy, and you’ll learn to express your love for the whole of humanity and all beings.”

      Hope this helps. 🙂
