“For me, the Holy Spirit
is mindfulness itself. . . .
In Buddhism, we speak of touching nirvana with our own body.
In Christianity, you can also touch the Kingdom of God
with your body, right here and now.
It is much safer than placing our hope in the future.
If we cling to our idea of hope in the future,
we might not notice the peace and joy
that are available in the present moment.”
Mindfulness is hope.
Thich Nhat Hanh, from Living Buddha, Living Christ
THIS IS WHERE WE LISTEN
The Prophet Isaiah said “those who hope
in the Lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)
The book of Isaiah reminds us of God’s promise, saying
“Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he,
I am he who will sustain you.
I have made you and I will carry you;
I will sustain you and I will rescue you.” (Isaiah 46:4)
