In the rush of modern life, we tend to lose touch with the peace that is available in each moment. World-renowned Zen master, peace activist and author Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how to make positive use of the very situations that usually pressure and antagonise us.
For him, a ringing telephone can be a signal to call us back to our true selves. Dirty dishes, red lights and traffic jams are spiritual friends on the path to 'mindfulness' - the process of keeping our consciousness alive to our present experience and reality. The most profound satisfactions, the deepest feelings of joy and completeness lie as close at hand as our next aware breath and the smile we can form right now.
This is a lucid and beautifully written book offering commentaries and meditations , personal anecdotes and stories to show how deep meditative presence is available to us now.
