Vivir en paz, vivir el presente - Living in the present moment

If you are depressed, you are living in the past. 
If you are anxious, you are living in the future.
If you are at peace, you are living in the present.”
~Lao Tzu

Si estás deprimido, vives en el pasado.
Si estás ansioso, vives en el futuro.
Si estás en paz, vives en el presente.

The emotion behind stress - Erin Olivo

Descubrir qué emoción se oculta detrás del estrés puede ser el principio de la comprensión y el cambio en nuestra vida diaria. Puede ser el miedo, la ansiedad, la aprensión ante algo que está en nuestra mente o en el mundo que nos rodea. Puede ser la frustración, la irritabilidad. Puede ser el desánimo.
Conocer lo que nos pasa es el primer paso para poder atender esa necesidad no cubierta.

Walking meditation at Plum Village Thich Nhat Hanh

Thich Nhat Hanh is one of the most renowned Buddhist teachers of our time. He is a Zen master, poet, prolific author, and founder of the Engaged Buddhist movement. Still actively traveling and teaching in his eighties, Thich Nhat Hanh resides at Plum Village, a practice community in southern France.

"Wherever we walk, we can practice meditation. This means that we know that we are walking.  We walk just for walking. We walk with freedom and solidity, no longer in a hurry. We are present with each step. And when we wish to talk we stop our movement and give our full attention to the other person, to our words and to listening.
Walking in this way should not be a privilege. We should be able to do it in every moment. Look around and see how vast life is, the trees, the white clouds, the limitless sky. Listen to the birds.
Feel the fresh breeze. Life is all around and we are alive and healthy and capable of walking in peace.

Let us walk as a free person and feel our steps get lighter. Let us enjoy every step we make. Each step is nourishing and healing. As we walk, imprint our gratitude and our love on the earth.

We may like to use a gatha as we walk. Taking two or three steps for each in-breath and each out-breath,

Breathing in "I have arrived"; Breathing out "I am home"
Breathing in "In the here"; Breathing out "In the now"
Breathing in "I am solid"; Breathing out "I am free"
Breathing in "In the ultimate"; Breathing out "I dwell"
