Present Moment

Our true home is in the present moment.

To live in the present moment is a miracle.
The miracle is not to walk on water.
The miracle is to walk on the green Earth in the present moment,
to appreciate the peace and beauty that are available now.
Peace is all around us-
in the world and in nature-
and within us-
in our bodies and our spirits.
Once we learn to touch this peace,
we will be healed and transformed.
It is not a matter of faith;
it is a matter of practice.

Thich Nhat Hanh

Do you allow yourself to be in the present moment?  How is this time spent?  For some it is in the delight of silence and solitude.  For others it is having heightened awareness of what is happening "now."  How can we slow down from the hustle and bustle of life and be more in the present moment?
