In this beautiful and lucid guide, Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh offers gentle anecdotes and practical exercise as a means of learning the skills of mindfulness--being awake and fully aware.
Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts. Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy. When we come into contact with the other person, our thoughts and actions should express our mind of compassion, even if that person says and does things that are not easy to accept. From washing the dishes to answering the phone to peeling an orange, he reminds us that each moment holds within it an opportunity to work toward greater self-understanding and peacefulness. I would like to start a reading habit to learn better how to meditate and become more aware of self.

The book describes mindfulness as not just something you do as you meditate,…moreIf you turned to page 79 there is a chapter on Exercises in Mindfulness.
But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. The past is gone, the future is not yet here, and if we do not go back to ourselves in the present moment, we cannot be in touch with life. The miracle is to walk on the green earth, dwelling deeply in the present moment and feeling truly alive. When you are carried away with your worries, fears, cravings, anger, and desire, you run away from yourself and you lose yourself. We practice in this way until we see clearly that our love is not contingent upon the other person being lovable.

The book describes mindfulness as not just something you do as you meditate, but something you kind of do throughout the day.
Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child -- our own two eyes. Like being mindful when you wake up, or being mindful when you bathe, or being mindful while you walk, or do dishes, etc.
