Walking with Thich Nhat Hanh – The art of Mindful Living

For my 30th birthday Ursel sent me the book Touching Peace of the Zen Buddhist Thich Nhat Hanh who created the Community Plum Village.

During the whole 2016 my mind was busy thinking about the meaning of the word Mindfulness. That Ursel gave me this book it was just a sign which indicated the importance of the concept of Mindfulness in my life. Recently I heard that the books you receive are never a coincidence and I think it is very true.

Reading Touching Peace was for me a great experience which made me feel a lot of good vibes. One of my favourite quotes of Hanh refers to the Christian values I grew up with: “To live in the present moment is a miracle. The miracle is not to walk on water. The miracle is to walk on the green Earth in the present moment, to appreciate the peace and beauty that are available now“.

Now I practice Mindfulness in my daily life. Indeed once a day I meditate with the App Calm (about which I will write a review in the next few weeks), I pray, I try to do something kind for an other person and appreciate to have something good in the fridge and to live in an multicultural and opened country like Germany.

To introduce you to the philosophy of the Zen Master Hanh, I share the trailer of a brand new film about him and his community, Walk with me.

You can find more details about this film and the Community of Plum Village on: http://walkwithmefilm.com/

Hal Elrod

Listening to the audio book ‘The miracle morning‘ was for me an interesting experience that changed my attitude with time and practice. That’s why I would like to introduce you to its author, Hal Elrod, and suggest you to watch this speech of him. Maybe you could do it during one of the next few days off. It’s really worth!

Draquila – Italien zittert

Warum wählen die Italiener Berlusconi? Die Gewalt der Propaganda, die Machtlosigkeit der Bürger, die Wirtschaft und der Umgang mit der Macht basiert auf Rechtswidrigkeit und eine Katastrophe: das Erdbeben, das die Stadt von L’Aquila vernichtet hat, erklärt wie die junge italienische Demokratie bezwungen wurde“. Sabina Guzzanti

Draquila – Italien zittert (Originaltitel: Draquila – L’Italia che trema) ist ein Film ist zu sehen und braucht keinen Kommentar.

Draquila – L’Italia che trema

Come mai gli italiani votano Berlusconi? La violenza della propaganda, l’impotenza dei cittadini, l’economia e i rapporti di forza fondati sull’illegalità e una catastrofe: il terremoto che ha annientato la città de L’Aquila per raccontare come è stata piegata la giovane democrazia italiana“. Sabina Guzzanti

Draquila – L’Italia che trema è un film assolutamente da vedere e che si commenta da solo.
