Mindful Of The Moment
"Master, how to diligently practice the Tao?"
"When hungry, eat: when tired, sleep."
"Is this not what most people do?"
"No, no, no! Most people are not like that."
"Most people, when eating, are full of thoughts and desires, and when sleeping, are full of cares."
How many people awake each morning with a mind unburdened by things of the past? One has to dispel dangerous things that cause inner turmoil and live according to one's original nature because Tao is in everyday life.
One needs to train the mind to be in the moment -- fully aware of present moment phenomena. It is Mindfulness from moment to moment that will lead to peace, joy and freedom of the mind.
