Peace Is Every Step
by Thich Nhat Hanh, (1976), Beacon Press, Boston
In Thich Nhat Hanh's book Present
Moment Wonderful Moment--Mindfulness Verses for Daily Living*,
(1990). See also Parallax
Press Resources for Mindful Living:
the introduction: This book contains short verses to help us dwell in
mindfulness. We often become so busy that we forget what we are doing or even
who we are. We forget to look at the people we love and to appreciate them...we
don't know how to get in touch with what is going on inside and outside of
ourselves...To meditate is to be aware of what is going on in our bodies, our
feelings, our minds, and in the world. This is a delightful book that promotes a
feeling of joy and of the sacredness of life.
