The Long Road Turns to Joy: A Guide to Walking Meditation

The Long Road Turns to Joy: A Guide to Walking Meditation - Thích Nhất Hạnh, Robert Aitken One of those books that are a series of reflections. Best digested slowly over a series of days -- reading it all at once doesn't make a true impression.My takeaway: smile like a buddha. "The half-smile is the fruit of your awareness that you are here, alive, and walking. At the same time, smiling nurtures more peace and joy within you. Smiling as you practice walking meditation will keep your steps calm and peaceful, and give you a deep sense of peace. A smile refreshes your whole being and strengthens your practice. Don't be afraid to smile."
