The Miracle of Mindfulness

by Thich Nhat Hanh

The Miracle of Mindfulness

Thich Nhat Hanh

Overview

According to philosopher Lao Tzu, if you're depressed, you're living in the past. If you're anxious, you're living in the future. And if you're at peace, you're living in the present. Take a moment to think about that and you'll find that it's true for yourself, too. We know that it's good to learn from the past, and everyone learns from a young age to prepare for the future. But the problem is that the line between preparedness and over-thinking is blurred. We get so caught up in what's happened or what we want that we fail to live our lives now.

If you want to be happy and at peace, you must learn to live in the present. That's where mindfulness comes in. And what better person to learn it from than Thich Nhat Hanh, a Zen master, and world-famous spiritual leader? His book The Miracle of Mindfulness: An Introduction to the Practice of Meditation is your gateway to the wonders of living in the present moment.

"In mindfulness, one is not only restful and happy, but alert and awake. Meditation is not evasion; it is a serene encounter with reality."
