The words [Thich Nhat Hanh] is always repeating are finally sinking in, "This is possible now." Happiness is possible, not in a few months, not in a year, or ten years, but right here and now. This is not an abstract idea to be considered and reconsidered. It is a practice. Practice is a word which recurs often at Plum Village. Here, practice is an everyday reality which is constant, simple and available to everyone, though they may have abandoned or forgotten it for a time.
