“If you are peaceful, if you are happy, whatever you do will be an offering for the people around you.”

NewsJReview (NJR) Happy Sun Day… Only Light We Wish Today.
A little about the author: Tich Nhat Hanh was a principle in helping to bring the Vietnam War to an end. He was also recommended by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for the Nobel Peace Prize. No doubt you will find many books this Zen master has written. One that we like  a lot is entitled  “The Miracle of Mindfulness.”  For me, its a guide that I have used….He actually lays out a breathing exercise for a routine I like…A hearty walk. Does  it help?…Yes. Clears the mind, allows focus, reflection…pause…And, prayer…Makes sense and room in the clutter of  life. This walk and reflect thing is not new.  When I served as Senior Vice President of News Feature Programs at CNN, I would make it a  point to walk the elevated parking garage park, weather permitting, located just behind CNN Headquarters, and in front of the Georgia World Congress center. Refreshing? Yes? It kept me balanced. It didn’t stop issues from arising, but it did deepen the energy reserve within me to deal with whatever…success or failure, stalemate and/or compromise. Demeanor is important in a leadership role. Erratic. Erasable. Not cool. Also, if you have to leave the field of play…it’s OK.  Timeouts are good too, however  long. It’s about Mindfulness.  I hope your Sunday was fruitful.
