Waiting for a bus, standing in line at the market or waiting to go into a bathroom during intermission at the theater becomes another chance to practice awareness. The usual frustrations of waiting and standing can be transformed into serious spiritual opportunity, a return to our pursuit of a more conscious, present existence grounded in respect for the sacred element in living.

Daniel Singer, Marcella Bakur Weiner in The Sacred Portable Now: The Transforming Gift of Living in the Moment by Daniel Singer, Marcella Bakur Weiner


To Practice This Thought:
The next time you have to wait somewhere, relax. Pay attention to your breath and the input of your senses.
