March 10, 2015


Mindfulness is the practice of paying active attention…really paying attention– to the present moment. No multi-tasking, no super-gadget juggling acts, no thoughts of the past or future.

Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves – slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future. Live the actual moment. Only this moment is life.

-Thich Nhat Hanh
