Mocha Angels 365. Day 10.

From The Art of Mindful Living by Thich Nhat Hanh. Audiobook links are below.

Breathing is the essence of Thich Nhat Hanh’s teachings. The technique in the photo is called “In/Out.” We stop thinking so much when we focus on our breath. We all think too much. Our body is present, but our mind is lost in the past or anxious about the future. The first fourteen minutes of The Art of Mindful Living, Part 1 is about this breath. It’s worth a listen.

Mocha Angels 365. Day 3.

Believe in yourself as you believe in God. Believe in God as you believe in yourself. With this belief, you cannot fail…in anything. You and God are co-creators of your life.

Show your faith by believing you are a powerful being who creates your life with thoughts, words, and actions. Consider each day a work of art, and you are the one painting the canvas.

Mantra:

I create a work of art today.

Mocha Angels 365. Day 356.

You all are glorious manifestations of God. Celebrate each other at this time of year. Be joyous and appreciative of the gift of life. Cast your “problems” aside. What good does it do to dwell on your “problems?” Worry does not solve them. Worry keeps you stuck.

Celebrate! You can breathe, see, hear, smell, and touch! You have plenty for which to be thankful. Your five senses allow you to experience God’s earthly creations. Breathe in the air that gives you life. See the sun rise and set. Hear children laughing. Smell food cooking on the stove. Hug another person and feel the love pulsating back and forth between you. Celebrate!

Mantra: I celebrate life today.
