Mindful Attention



“The most precious gift

we can offer anyone is

our attention.

When mindfulness embraces

those we love,

they will bloom

like flowers.”


~Thich Nhat Hanh


Yes, it is great to just hang out with a friend,

but to be a true friend we should pay attention

and be with our friends;  body, mind and soul.

Mindfulness is not just a solitary practice;

controlling your breathing,

contemplating your navel,

concentrating on chewing of your food,

it is also being aware of the world about you

and the greatest rewards are when

you share your world with a friend.

Friendship is offering mindful attention to those we love.

Friendship is a priceless gem

that is to be valued and protected.
