The thought about peace,
balance and harmony from
aware of itself,
Become, manifest the peace
Your thought of the day reminded me today of the most
peaceful Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, about his idea of mindfulness
and walking meditation, the transformation happening in communication
with and from Nature…
by Thich Nhat Hanh
Original Language English
Take my hand.
We will walk.
We will only walk.
We will enjoy our walk
without thinking of arriving anywhere.
Our walk is a peace walk.
Our walk is a happiness walk.
Then we learn
that there is no peace walk;
that peace is the walk;
that there is no happiness walk;
that happiness is the walk.
We walk for ourselves.
We walk for everyone
always hand in hand.
Walk and touch peace every moment.
Walk and touch happiness every moment.
Each step brings a fresh breeze.
Each step makes a flower bloom under our feet.
Kiss the Earth with your feet.
Print on Earth your love and happiness.
Earth will be safe
when we feel in us enough safety.
…and here is part of your so peaceful commentary upon this poem
“To walk through the world, with a sense of peace in the heart and belly, feeling simple happiness beneath the worries of the day, touching the earth and being touched by the earth, seeing and encountering without constricting the awareness, secure enough to know ourselves, where we are, what we are part of… we are doing walking meditation.”
From my heart to yours,
P.S. Thank you for Li Bai poem “Green Mountains”, it is such a beauty, the sound of the stillness from the mountain forest…and a silent, wordless, smiling wisdom…:)
