In each moment we have the opportunity to greet what we seek.
At any moment, you have a choice, that either leads you closer to your spirit or further away from it. Be free where you are.
~Thich Nhat Hahn
Our true home is in the present moment. To live in the present moment is a miracle. The miracle is not to walk on water. The miracle is to walk on the green earth in the present moment, to appreciate the peace and beauty available right now ~
Thich Nhat Hanh
“The brain takes its shape from what the mind rests upon” Rick Hanson
Rick Hanson talks about resting the mind on pleasant experiences continually for lasting resilience, inner strength and cultivating a positive outlook.
When we are busy at work, taking care of family, achieving goals, we get caught up in getting it all done. Taking a pause is important. Its being mindful of the work being done and the experience being created.
Whether you decide to do a stretch, a breathing exercise, find an image to gaze upon, bring up a joyful memory, pauses of 1 to 3 minutes can replenish you for long periods of time.
Pauses are not frivolous, instead they are an act of kindness.
Life is imperfect
Indeed, that is true
In all this imperfection
Love can be found
Hope comes around
Faith stands its ground
