Monday Mindfulness ~ April 15, 2019

Hello, and happy Monday Mindfulness to you all once again!

Hopefully, if you’ve been off this weekend you’ve had a restful time of it, and if you’ve been at work I hope that very soon you get a nice bit of time to yourself or with loved ones to unwind and recover.

This week’s thought of the moment to start our week off comes from Zen Master and founder of the Engaged Buddhism movement, Thich Nhat Hanh. As someone who all too often slips only semi-consciously into worrying over the past and the future, I feel that this quote offers an especially important reminder.

  1. Hanh, has been one of my greatest teachers. His applied Buddhism speaks to me. I recently read of his stroke and that he is coming to the end of his life, so he has chosen to return home to Vietnam. He can no longer speak, yet he is still teaching by writing his words with the one hand that is functioning for him. His entire life, is a portrait of a life well lived. His day to day being is a snapshot of mindfulness in life. I love the quote you posted. Here is another one of my favorite quotes from him.

    “Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.”

    ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
