The Art of Living Together
“Living together is an art.” I love these words strung together in the way they are below. Thich Nhat Hanh says it so well.
It’s lovely to consider how I may listen well to those I live with and contribute more fully to their everyday happiness. Even with my good intentions, it may be easy to miss the mark on the thing I value most…loving presence and peace in the moment with my sweet little family. So easy to get busy and full of ambition that makes the sweetness of the moments dull at times…
One may also consider how to see the good intentions of others and choose the mindfulness in the moment to bring more peace, joy, love and “happiness” to the art of living together well. Maybe holding others to our perceived “happiness” requirements simply robs us of the joy within the moment waiting there to bless us.
May we all live well together in the truest happiness that is the present moment! Sending love and joy!
