“It is probable that the next Buddha will not take the form of an individual. The next Buddha may take the form of a community, a community practicing understanding and loving kindness, a community practicing mindful living. This may be the most important thing we can do for the survival of the earth.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
Thich Nhat Hanh, known by friends as Thay, is a beloved Buddhist Monk who teaches peace through mindful living. You can visit him at www.plumvillage.org He is also on facebook!
How can you create peace in your personal community – your personal space, family, social groups, local community and global community? Let us walk each day as peacemakers living our lives with an open heart for all. Mindful living is tapping into the joy in nature, in art, in children and within your Sacred heart where peace dwells always. It is a way of forgiving and becoming aware of who you really are so you may experience each moment fully. It is taking off the blinders and really seeing…really being. It is being mindful of all our actions, feelings and thoughts.
Affirmation: “I am mindful of the way I speak to others.”
Love and peace,
