SHAMBHALA SUN MArcH 2010 73 Thich Nhat Hanh continued from page 37 For a complete collection of his teachings, stories, and interviews, go to our Thich Nhat Hanh special section at shambhalasun.com. a green light so that you can continue. But the red light can be a signal. It can be a reminder that there is tension in you, the stress of wanting to arrive as quickly as possible. If you recognize that, you can make use of the red light. You can sit back and relax—take the ten seconds the light is red to practice mindful breathing and release the tension in the body. So next time you’re stopped at a red light, you might like to sit back and prac- tice the fourth exercise: “Breathing in, I’m aware of my body. Breathing out, I release the tension in my body.” Peace is possible at that moment, and it can be practiced many times a day—in the workplace, while you are driving, while you are cook- ing, while you are doing the dishes, while you are watering the vegetable garden. It is always possible to practice releasing the tension in yourself. Walking Meditation When you practice mindful breathing you simply allow your in breath to take place. You become aware of it and enjoy it. Effortlessness. The same thing is true with mindful walking. Every step is enjoyable. Every step helps you touch the wonders of life. Every step is joy. That is possible. You don’t have to make any effort during walking meditation, because it is enjoyable. You are there, body and mind together. You are fully alive, fully present in the here and the now. With every step, you touch the wonders of life that are in you and around you. When you walk like that, every step brings healing. Every step brings peace and joy, because every step is a miracle. The real miracle is not to fly or walk on fire. The real miracle is to walk on the Earth, and you can perform that miracle at any time. Just bring your mind home to your body, become alive, and perform the miracle of walking on Earth. ♦ Graduate Education at the Frontier of Psychology and Spirituality Kait is passionate about integrating Buddhism and women’s psychology into psychotherapy to help clients through the bereavement process.
