have you ever heard of the Buddhist Monk Thích Nhất Hạnh? Or let me rephrase that, you have heard of the Buddhist Master Thích Nhất Hạnh. His spiritual quotes, teachings and reports from life experiences, are all over the internet, social media and other places where spiritual awakened ones and seeker come together. He is a Zen Master, a global spiritual leader, a poet, an international peace activist and in his tradition he is considered a Living Buddha or Living Christ. Born in 1926, he started teaching in his twenties and ever since, his life has since been dedicated to the work of inner transformation for the benefit of individuals and society. His teachings on mindfulness, on peace-making, on community-building in schools, workplaces, businesses and even prisons, has inspired millions of people by now.
Thích Nhất Hạnh’s key teaching is, that mindfulness is the gateway to be in the present moment and doorstep to truly develop peace, both in one’s self and in the world. For the collective awakening of humanity his sharing is more relevant than ever, as we have now entered the year of authentically putting the teachings we have received into actions, and find creative solutions from a place of wisdom. The many links in the text are there to show, how highly relevant his teachings of 60years are for us here and now!
Here are 20 of his famous quotes you might have heard before:
1.) “Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor.
2.) “Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.”
3.) “When another person makes you suffer, it is because he suffers deeply within himself, and his suffering is spilling over. He does not need punishment; he needs help. That’s the message he is sending.”
4.) “To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.”
5.) “People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.”
6.) “Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything like – anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free.”
7.) “When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you don’t blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it is not doing well. It may need fertilizer, or more water, or less sun. You never blame the lettuce.
Yet if we have problems with our friends or family, we blame the other person. But if we know how to take care of them, they will grow well, like the lettuce.
Blaming has no positive effect at all, nor does trying to persuade using reason and argument. That is my experience. No blame, no reasoning, no argument, just understanding. If you understand, and you show that you understand, you can love, and the situation will change”
8.) “People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child — our own two eyes. All is a miracle.”
9.) “Because you are alive, everything is possible.”
10.) “Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.”
11.) “Smile, breathe and go slowly.”
12.) “Breathing in, I calm body and mind. Breathing out, I smile. Dwelling in the present moment I know this is the only moment.”
13.) “The seed of suffering in you may be strong, but don’t wait until you have no more suffering before allowing yourself to be happy.”
14.) “Many people think excitement is happiness…. But when you are excited you are not peaceful. True happiness is based on peace.”
15.) “Waking up this morning, I smile. Twenty-four brand new hours are before me. I vow to live fully in each moment and to look at all beings with eyes of compassion.”
16.) “If you love someone but rarely make yourself available to him or her, that is not true love.”
17.) “You must love in such a way that the person you love feels free.”
18.) “Through my love for you, I want to express my love for the whole cosmos, the whole of humanity, and all beings. By living with you, I want to learn to love everyone and all species. If I succeed in loving you, I will be able to love everyone and all species on Earth… This is the real message of love.”
19.) “My actions are my only true belongings.”
20.) “Our own life has to be our message.”

about 3 years ago, I started noticing synchronicity in numbers appearing all over the place in my life. The appearances got stronger and stronger over the first year and than, they started translating themselves to me on an energetic level.
The divine/hermetic law of “everything is vibration and everything is in resonance” unveiled itself.
I developed a more refined feeling for the frequency vibrations the universe is expressing through the numbers. It is indeed fascinating how much we can learn about ourselves and the bigger picture, by spending time with this vibrations.
In the last few month now, as the acceleration rate for the human awakening is constantly increasing, more and more people from all over the world have reported seeing the numbers and wondering what they mean.
Especially High Sensitive persons, Lightworker, energy-worker, intuitive and spiritual minded people are at the moment strongly effected by this phenomena. 11:11 may even be a vibration encoded in their DNA (or physical consciousness / memory). If we allow ourselves to be guided by them, they can lead us to our soul purpose.
Here are interpretations coming from numerology:
11: When you notice the synchronicity with the number 11, it me that your awareness is growing. You are deeper “tuned in” now. Once you start with 11, more number synchronicity will follow. Try to notice the first thing that comes to your mind, when you see the number the next time. Make sure your thoughts match the true desires of your soul!
111: An energetic gateway has opened for you. The energetic level of light you are able to hold in your physical body is increasing. Your power to bring dreams and soul desire into manifestation is growing now.
1111: A great moment to pause and increase your awareness of what is happening in front of your eyes. It comes when one of these energies manifests in your life or, one of them truly starts flowing for you – your sexuality, the flow of your inner water, your money themes, the Kundalini energy. Especially 11:11 is also often understood as a call for Lightworker, Intuitives and Channeler to follow the voice of their inner abilities – and do whatever it is everyone can do for our Golden Age of Humanity.
222 or 2222: Trust and keep going! You are in the middle of the resurrection of your physical body! The process of ascension to a full integration of your light-body takes patients and faith.
333 or 3333: You are called to make clear decision on topics already since a while on your mind. Your decision will determine if the energies of 666 = the material world or of 999 = the spiritual world, increasingly appear in your life.
444 or 4444: The Number of stability between the forces (11:11) is also the number of inner strength and resurrection. All your bodies need to be equally cleaned and aligned to step out of the wheel of Karma. When the numbers are repeating, it is a time to incorporate the mastery of yourself.
555 or 5555: The number of awakening into the Christ Consciousness, the golden I AM awareness. The Christ Consciousness is the individual divine awareness within every human being.
666 or 6666: The number of the materially manifested world, everything physical. The point of few you have chosen in your momentary reality.
777 or 7777: Congratulations!!! You have managed the integration of a new piece of your higher-self. You have flooded parts of the four lower bodies with higher spiritual frequencies and enlightened them.
888 or 8888: The symbol of infinity. The unified spiral of the physical plane merging with the spiritual plane, the masculine with the feminine. The balance within the paradox of the forces. A time to step into your self-empowerment.
999 or 9999: Symbolizes our ability to master our energies of the divine – the compassionate human heart – the lower vibrations of nature (3), on 3 different levels (3×3=9). In relationship to our individual personality, in relation with the divine and in relation to the rest of humanity. The number of completion of the human ascension.
Here some words from Doreen Virtue, how angels use the numbers:
111: Monitor your thoughts carefully, and be sure to only think about what you want, not what you don’t want. This sequence is a sign that there is a gate of opportunity opening up, and your thoughts are manifesting into form at record speeds. The 111 is like the bright light of a flash bulb.
It means the universe has just taken a snapshot of your thoughts and is manifesting them into form. Are you pleased with what thoughts the universe has captured? If not, correct your thoughts.
222: Our newly planted ideas are beginning to grow into reality. Keep watering and nurturing them, and soon they will push through the soil so you can see evidence of your manifestation. In other words, don’t quit five minutes before the miracle. Your manifestation is soon going to be evident to you, so keep up the good work!
Keep holding positive thoughts, keep affirming, and continue visualizing!!!
333: The Ascended Masters are near you, desiring you to know that you have their help, love, and companionship. Call upon the Ascended Masters often, especially when you see the number 3 pattern around you.
444: The angels are surrounding you now, reassuring you of their love and help. Don’t worry because the angels’ help is nearby.
555: Buckle your seat-belts. A major life change is upon you. This change should not be viewed as being “positive” or “negative,” since all change is but a natural part of life’s flow. Perhaps this change is an answer to your prayers, so continue seeing and feeling yourself being at peace.
666: Your thoughts are out of balance right now, focused too much on the material world. This number sequence asks you to balance your thoughts between heaven and earth. Like the famous “Sermon on the Mount,” the angels ask you to focus on spirit and service, and know your material and emotional needs will automatically be met as a result.
777: The angels applaud you…congratulations, you’re on a roll! Keep up the good work and know your wish is coming true. This is an extremely positive sign and means you should also expect more miracles to occur.
888: A phase of your life is about to end, and this is a sign to give you a forewarning to prepare. This number sequence may mean you are winding up an emotional career, or relationship phase. In addition, it means, “The crops are ripe. Don’t wait to pick and enjoy them.” In other words, don’t procrastinate making your move or enjoying fruits of your labor.
999: Completion. This is the end of a big phase in your personal or global life. Also, it is a message to lightworkers involved in Earth healing and means, “Get to work because Mother Earth needs you right now.”
In the hope that this little over-few has brought you a step closer to unveiling the many, beautiful languages and expressions of “THE ONE” within you and in the world surrounding you!
Blessings and Guiding Angels
