Nourishing ourselves with positive elements gives us the strength to heal from suffering. Without nourishment, we cannot heal.
The more we are aware of suffering, the more important it is to dwell peacefully, happily, and with compassion in the present moment. The present moment becomes a refuge preventing us from drowning in collective suffering. It gives us faith to move on and take action from a place of love.
Coming back to the present moment is already engaged Buddhsim. It is a daily training. Coming back to our breathing, listening to the bell, walking mindfully… are all practices that help us to generate the energy of mindfulness.
Suggested Practice from Brother Pháp Ứng
Each day for one week, whenever you stop to breathe, put a hand on the heart and smiling, quietly say to yourself:
“I am loved
I am complete
I am nourishing and healing myself
Healing begins with myself right here, right now”
