Sample text

All you have to do is learn how to transform your garbage into flowers. 20 A Visit from a Friend SUPPOSE A FRIEND who has come a long way to visit is having a cup of tea with us. Mindfulness helps the time we spend with her to be a time we won’t forget. We’re not thinking of anything. We’re not thinking of our business, our projects. We just focus our attention on this moment when we’re with our friend. We’re fully aware that she is there and that we can sit with her and enjoy a cup of tea. Mindfulness helps us to taste the joy of each moment very deeply.

We may not know when or even why such moments of insight will occur, but there are ways we can make them more likely. One is contemplating the wisdom of a great spiritual teacher like Thich Nhat Hanh. His role as a Buddhist master is to transmit to us the insight he has gained in a long life of study and meditation. In the Buddhist tradition, that transmission can take place over the course of years—or in a moment. A phrase, a single word, a blow, or a shout can be enough to wake us up. Or a paragraph or two of profound truth and instruction—like those on every page of this book.

Each of us knows that we can do that, so let us train to live each moment of our daily life deeply. That is why I like to define mindfulness as the energy that helps us to be there 100 percent. It is the energy of your true presence. 3 Miracles AROUND US, LIFE bursts forth with miracles—a glass of water, a ray of sunshine, a leaf, a caterpillar, a flower, laughter, raindrops. If you live in awareness, it is easy to see miracles everywhere. Each human being is a multiplicity of miracles. Eyes that see thousands of colors, shapes, and forms; ears that hear a bee flying or a thunderclap; a brain that ponders a speck of dust as easily as the entire cosmos; a heart that beats in rhythm with the heartbeat of all beings.
