Peace is Every Step - The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life by Thich Nhat Hanh


 
In the rush of modern life, we tend to lose touch with the peace that is available in each moment. Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how to make positive use of the very situations that usually pressure and antagonize 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 mile we can form right now.

Lucidly and beautifully written, Peace is Every Step contains commentaries and meditations, personal anecdotes and stories from Thich Nhat Hanh's experiences as a peace activist, teacher, and community leader. It begins where the reader already is -- in the kitchen, office, driving a car, walking in a park -- and shows how deep meditative presence is available now. Nhat Hanh provides exercises to increase our awareness of our own body and mind through conscious breathing, which can bring immediate joy and peace. Nhat Hanh also shows how to be aware of relationships with others and of the world around us, its beauty and also its pollution and injustices. The deceptively simple practices of Peace is Every Step encourage the reader to work on sustaining inner peace by turning the "mindless" into the "mindful".
