The Real Miracle

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 in Life Prayers

Across the field at sunset in July.

Woods hold me
Goddess hear me
Peace fill me…
