Care is a Priceless Gift 

“Your home is in the here and the now.” 

Tich Nhat Hanh

This holiday season, we have a chance to express our love and care for Mother Earth by the way we care for our self, our family and our environment. We can practice mindfulness to care for our inner environment, our feelings and our emotions so that we do not lose our self in worries about the future or regrets about the past, or lose our self with our feelings and thinking in the present moment. We practice in such a way that we are peaceful, free and happy right in the here and now.

We can practice to be more relaxed in our body and mind as we drive our car to work, or cook for our family, or play with our friends, or even rest when we return home. We can look deeply into our relationships with our loved ones, with our environment, our neighbourhood, and our workplace and find skillful ways to care, to renew and to improve them.

Care is a priceless gift.

Mindfulness as a Foundation for Health Tich Naht Hanh and monastics – YT Video

    Thank you my friend. I find your thoughts most insightful and thought provoking too. Mindfulness is the life-blood of our meditation practice, but yes – as a way of life it is supreme _/\_
