60 Seconds for Thoughts on Thursday: Mindfulness Training Lessens Suffering and Restores Joy
by Diane Wyzga | July 21, 2022 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you Patrice Kealy listening in Montague, New Jersey!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk with 60 Seconds for Thoughts on Thursday and your host, Diane Wyzga.
My teacher, the Vietnamese Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh lived deeply in each moment of daily life, a practice born of bearing the wounds of war and offering a lifetime of mindfulness training to lessen our suffering and restore our joy. His words sustain me in these times; they may do the same for you.
This is what Thay taught: “Aware that life is available only in the present moment and that it is possible to live happily in the here and now, I am committed to training myself to live deeply each moment of daily life. I will try not to lose myself in dispersion or be carried away by regrets about the past, worries about the future, or craving, anger or jealousy in the present. I will practice mindful breathing to come back to what is happening in the present moment. I am determined to learn the art of mindful living by touching the wondrous, refreshing and healing elements that are inside and around me, and by nourishing seeds of joy, peace, love and understanding in myself, thus facilitating the work of transformation and healing in my consciousness.”
