I make an effort to spend a little time every day reading something that isn’t on the internet …
Something that might remind me what a gift today is …
What a gift every d ay is.
And this is what I found this morning (in a book called Life Prayers: 365 Prayers, Blessings and Affirmations to Celebrate the Human Journey From Around The World):
Our true home is in the present moment.
To live in the present moment is a miracle.
The miracle is not to walk on water.
The miracle is to walk on the green Earth in the present moment,
to appreciate the peace and beauty that are available now.
Peace is all around us–
in the world and in nature–
and within us–
in our bodies and our spirits.
Once we learn to touch this peace,
We will be healed and transformed.
It is not a matter of faith;
it is a matter of practice.
— Thich Nhat Hanh
