We must be aware of the problems of the world.
Then, with mindfulness, we will know what to do and what not to do to be of help.
If we maintain awareness of our breathing and continue to practice smiling,
even in difficult situations,
many people, animals and plants will benefit from our way of doing things.
Are you massaging our Mother Earth every time your foot touches her?
Are you planting seeds of joy and peace?
I try to do exactly that with every step,
and I know that our Mother Earth is most appreciative.
Peace is every step.
Shall we continue the journey?
Thich Nhat Hanh, Peace in Every Step, 1991
