Peace of Mind

A fellow designer lends me Thich Nhat Hanh’s Being Peace, and I read from cover to cover in a couple of hours. In a nutshell, the book shows us how to find peace within ourselves and bring peace to the world around us. One of the forms of Buddhism that strikes me the most is the Tiep Hien (Interbeing) Order, which is to live and to appreciate the moment. The word “Tiep” is “to be in touch” and “Hien” is “the present time.” This practice is something I have been striving for the last couple of years. I have tried my best to not worry about the future and to free my mind from unnecessary burdens. I still haven’t found that peacefulness inside of me yet, but I am much calmer and mellower than before. So turn off television, log off cyberspace, kick back, relax, and enjoy a mindfulness experience of Being Peace.
