Mindfulness at Work
on 3 September 2017
One of many Thigh Nhat Hang books that I've read. To be honest, I don't think that the end result of reading this one is that I will become a mindful bodhisattva in the work place. Fundamentally, whilst the intention is no doubt a fruitful one to which many will aspire, the result can be achieved with positive intent by simply adopting a mindful approach. The approach & adoption of mindful principles of understanding, compassion, joy & forgiveness will be known to most. The principle is one to be followed in life. Do the principles need to be relayed within a book to the work place? Possibly. Possibly not? Whether we like it or not, for the majority, there is a clear and separate space between the work and home environment. A state of bodhisattva will be reached where the boundary is not defined and we can operate in mindful joy between the two.
A quote to take away from the book is "If you're not aware of the sunshine, you always live in the dark. Mindfulness helps you to see that there is sunshine".
