I imagine that yes is the only living thing.
― E.E. Cummings
A man went to a Buddhist Monastery for a silent retreat.
After a week of silence, he felt healthier, calmer, and stronger but he felt like something was missing.
The teacher told him he could speak to a Buddhist Monk before he left.
The man went over and asked the Monk, ‘How do I find deep peace?’
The Monk replied, ‘I say YES to everything that happens in life. The good, the bad, and the ugly. This way I have no resistance to life and life has no resistance to me.
When the man returned home, he practiced this each day and was enlightened.
