be here

this poppy

how beauty full

a kind of “stop sign”

reminding me to stop running

and to be in the present moment

“Stop! The street sign reminds you. Stop running, because life is here, in the present moment. We have to train in that. As you breathe out, you say, “I am home.” I am already home, I don’t have to run. I am at home, in my true home. The address of my true home is clear: life, hear and now. Peace is something that becomes possible the moment you stop.”—Thich Nhat Hanh, “you are here” p. 37

"Now is the hour for peace to flower"

--Sr. Macrina Wiederkehr and Velma Frye, "sevenscaredpauses"

(I made a little flash banner of this for one of my school homework assignments)
