Practicing mindfulness is a constant learning curve. We all need a reminder now and then to see how important it is to take a step back and become aware of the present moment again. Here a little dose of mindfulness for today to get you back on the right track 🙂
A Bit of Mindfulness For Today
If you only focus on what isn’t in your life, you will always be lacking something, be it position, love, money, or enlightenment. Let life happen as it happens. Go with it and focus on the fullness of each moment. Let go. Look around you and appreciate the beauty around you. Nothing is just black or white. Everything just ‘is’. Acceptance, appreciation and gratefulness will help you gain your inner balance.
How many times have you travelled somewhere without remember travelling the last few miles. How many times have you eaten a meal without tasting a single bite? How many times have you spoken to your loved ones without appreciation how blessed you are? How many times have you realised that you are ‘existing’ through an experience but not really living and experiencing it?Without focusing on the moment, life passes by in a blur. Discover the world around you. Step out of your comfort zone. Do the trip you always wanted to do. Call that old friend from high school. Remember your forgotten dreams and go and chase them!
Don’t be distracted from living life to the fullest by the intensity of your everyday life. There will always be bills to pay, errands to run, problems to face.
If you only could be somewhere else now, doing something else – being somewhere where you can be free… You are free. You are free in this very moment, doing exactly what you are doing. It is all in your mind. The only Zen you will gain through any meditation is the Zen that is already within you. Meditation is just a means to ‘unlock’ it. It’s all in your mind. Try to find your inner balance in every single moment of you life.
