We’re Back

We're Back! "Life is precious as it is. -Thich Nhât Hanh

Hello Mindfuls! After some unscheduled and unplanned time away, we’re back! The need for more rest and downtime is called for during the summer months. Exploring nature, meeting new people, and finding peace within were the goals! As we move back into the hectic semester, we have to remember and find what brings us joy outside of work.

Thích Nhất Hanh’s book, The Miracle of Mindfulness: An Introduction to the Practice of Meditation, shares a powerful quote on the need to slow down, “There is no need to put anything in front of us and run after it. We already have everything we are looking for, everything we want to become. Be yourself. Life is precious as it is. All the elements for your happiness are already here. There is no need to run, strive, search, or struggle. Just be.” This is not an easy task, but one to reflect upon. As I’ve repeated in this space often, time is yours.

Allow yourself time to explore without judgment. Cultivating any new practices takes time, understanding, and flexibility. Welcome the process and make it work within your needs.

  • Where/What are some areas in your life that call for rest or a step back?

Take care of yourselves.

Mindfully,

Amanda
