Thich Nhat Hanh º Peace Is Every Step The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life ePub

Ping our consciousness alive to our present experience and reality The most profound satisfactions the deepest feelings of joy and completeness lie as close at hand as our next aware breath and the smile we can form right nowLucidly and beautifully written Peace Is Every Step contains commentaries and meditations personal anecdotes and stories from Nhat Hanh's experiences as a peace activist teacher and community leader It begins where the reader already is in the kitchen office driving a car Is Every Step The Path PDFEPUB or walking a part an Thich Nhat Hanh's writing is deceptive in its subtlety He'll go on and on with stories about tree hugging or metaphors involving raw potatoes; he'll tell you how to eat mindfully even how to breathe and walk; he'll suggest looking closely at a flower and to see the sun as your heart As the Zen teacher Richard Baker commented however Nhat Hanh is a cross between a cloud a snail and piece of heavy machinery Sooner or later it begins to sink in that Nhat Hanh is conveying a depth of psychology and a world outlook that reuire nothing less than a complete paradigm shift Through his cute stories and compassionate admonitions he gradually builds up to his philosophy of interbeing the notion that none of us is separately but rather that we inter are The ramifications are explosive How can we mindlessly and selfishly pursue our individual ends when we are inextricably bound up with everyone and everything else We see an enemy not as focus of anger but as a human with a complex history who could be us if we had the same history Suffice it to say that after reading Peace Is Every Step you'll never look at a plastic bag the same way again and you may even develop a penchant for hugging trees Brian Bruya

Peace Is Every Step The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday LifeD shows how deep meditative presence is available now Nhat Hanh provides exercises to increase our awareness of our own body and mind through conscious breathing which can bring immediate joy and peace Nhat Hanh also shows how to be aware of relationships with others and of the world around us its beauty and also its pollution and injustices the deceptively simple practices of Peace Is Every Step encourage the reader to work for peace in the world as he or she continues to work on sustaining inner peace by turning the mindless into the mindFUL This book is full of beneficial guidelines for living a mindful peaceful life and helping those around you do the same Even if it confirms what you already know it is a pleasurable read and a beautiful inspiration to actively appreciate the positive aspects of livingLike most other Buddhist works it is centered around living in the present I wasn't expecting him to devote a section to the idea of hope as an obstacle but it made good sense It's very easy to keep looking toward tomorrow wishing for better days but in doing that you're practicing avoidance Facing your current situation and dealing with it head on isn't always easy but it's heavily encouraged hereI also appreciated Thich Nhat Hanh's encouragement to eliminate distractions We waste so much time being entertained that we forget to live our own lives to the fullest Not being a fan of most television programming myself I am all for turning off the TV and foregoing the 40000 some odd murders we see a year the 80000 or so companies shoving products and services in our faces that we must buy now and the made up numbers I use to talk about these unnecessary absurditiesWhat's dangerous than violence and guerrilla advertising I think is what we neglect when we decide we'd rather be entertained than really alive When we fall into the fantasy worlds TV games and online environments provide we are putting aside the important people who comprise our actual worlds If you have 30 minutes to kill why not take a walk or write a letter to someone you haven't seen in awhile Even if you're dirt poor and in the middle of nowhere you can still meditate It'll clear out your mind and improve your mood over whatever the latest reality show is pushingAnother main point of this book is to deepen your understanding of your friends and enemies alike And then it's not enough to just understand you have to act on this understanding In order to reconcile your differences you have to talk to the other person to test your real strength Having the peace of mind to do this in a calm well executed fashion is tough but when you come upon challenges like this it is comforting to have this simple yet powerful book to lay the framework for some good meditation sessionsPeace Is Every Step came at a good time for me At this point in my life where everything seems to be in upheaval it's nice to remember that I can decide to be centered whenever I want I need not depend on outside circumstances or other people to relax and find my own true happiness
