Reflexion by Mark Francis : My daughter captured me taking her younger sister for a walk right before her bedtime.

Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh once told me, “How often do you play with your children but you’re too busy in your mind thinking about your todo lists or you’re busy checking your mobile phone. When you do this, your children know you are not there. Your body is there but you aren’t there. You are absent – and your children and loved ones feel your absence.

But when you arrive in the present moment, you can transmit your total
presence – and this is true love….and this is how you live your life deeply.”

I’ve been grateful for his words of wisdom ever since then.
