“Whenever we hear a conversation or witness an event, our attention can be appropriate or inappropriate. If we are mindful, we will recognize which is which, nurture appropriate attention, and release inappropriate attention, noting, ‘I am aware that this inappropriate attention will not benefit me or those I care about.’
When we know how to maintain a calm, joyful mind, our words and actions will manifest peace and happiness. We will be our own true friend and a good friend to many others.”
Thich Nhat Hanh
May this simple practice benefit you too.
