Part of what I love about cultivating a mindfulness practice and Thich Nhat Hanh’s tradition is that what we are being drawn towards and connected to is the art of simply being just as we are. To embrace ourselves fully and engage with life and those around us fully. To open our mind and our heart and let it all in.
There is nothing special we need to do, no one in particular we need to show up as. We do what we are already doing and we continue to be as we already are. We aren’t waiting for life to get better or for ourselves to “improve” because life is amazing and awesome right now – and so are we!
Sometimes the most beneficial thing for us to do is to just be.
