Focus

January 6, 2016

To stay in the present moment takes concentration. When we have concentration, we have a lot of energy. We won’t get carried away by visions of past suffering or fears about the future. We dwell stably in the present moment so we can get in touch with the wonders of life, and generate joy and happiness. If you focus on your breathing in a relaxed way, you are already cultivating an inner strength. Like that happiness arises lightly and easily.

(Thich Nhat Hanh, No Mud No Lotus)
