Some daily food for thought......

If we are not fully ourselves, truly in the present moment, 
we miss everything. 
When a child presents himself to you with his smile, 
if you are not really there - thinking about the future or the past, 
or preoccupied with other problems - then the child is not really there for you. 
The technique of being alive is to go back to yourself
in order for the child to appear like a marvellous reality.
Then you can see him smile and you can embrace him in your arms.

- Thich Nhat Hanh
