Breathing, centering, finding my inner peace.  That is what today is about.

Thich Nhat Hanh is a Vietnamese Zen Buddhist monk, author, poet and peace activist.

Just typing the combination of those words makes me feel calmer.

I know that somewhere, under all the rushing and running around and multi-tasking is a peaceful inner core, and my aim is to find it.

But first I have to create the conditions to get to it.

What is the hurry?

With the help of Thich Nhat Hanh’s quote below, I will decrease the speed with which I am living my life.  I will do one thing.  Slowly.

So that I may reach a peaceful place.

“Breathing in, I calm my body.
Breathing out, I smile.
Dwelling in the present moment I know
this is a wonderful moment.”
                         ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
