Purposeful Thought for the Weekend

Do we mindfully and purposefully practice meditation?

"We should be able to bring the practice of meditation into our daily lives. We need to discuss among ourselves how to do it.

  • Do you practice breathing between phone calls?
  • Do you practice smiling while cutting carrots?
  • Do you practice relaxation after hard hours of work?

These are practical questions. If you know how to apply meditation to dinner time, leisure time, sleeping time, it will penetrate your daily life, and it will also have a tremendous effect on social concerns."

From Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life by Thich Nhat Hanh

Live mindfully,
Coach Carolyn
