Practicing Mindful Living

Becoming mindful and aware each day can make a difference. Just by being kinder to whoever you come across can create a positive affect that creates ripples of loving kindness energy. Don't you feel better when someone treats you with kindness and respect? It takes practice, on a regular basis, if it is not natural for you to be this way. Take simple steps to being mindful. You can start your day with a few minutes of quiet, as your mind needs rest from thinking. Then, pause and reflect on those things that are good and positive in your life. Give thanks and say a little prayer of gratitude. Then go about your day with good intentions no matter what, or who, may challenge your peace. This is a little insight into what Thich Nhat Hanh means by "a community practicing mindful living".
