I was watching Thich Nhat Hanh on Oprah’s “Super Soul Sunday. He is a Buddhist Monk who has spent his life dedicated to bringing peace to the world through compassion, mindfulness and love.
It was certainly a compelling interview, but he shared one thing that truly caught my attention.
With books like, Eckhart Tolle’s, “The Power of Now, ” or the initial teaching of any Spiritual philosophy, that there is nothing more important than the present moment.
Even a moment that may be challenging; the present moment is the only place for our mind to be.
How are we, then, to create peace in the present moment when the grocery lists, kids’ schedules, the hair appointment we made to cover our roots constantly run through our minds?
