Whoa …


“Perhaps the most “spiritual” thing any of us can do is simply to look through our own eyes, see with eyes of wholeness, and act with integrity and kindness.”
Jon Kabat-Zinn, Wherever You Go, There You Are: Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life

Sometimes words cannot describe all the colors, shapes, and intensity of one sunset …

Luckily, everyone in the civilized world,including me,  has a camera ready at any given moment to capture what we experience … or at least a version of it.

… and yet, how many other people had this same beautiful and inspiring image available to them, but did not see it?

As the wise master above suggests, sometimes the best thing we do is to notice … Which requires that we pay attention, look around, stop being busy, and become aware over a period of time of where we are and what is happening around us.  

… Not as easy as one might think.

If the thought of doing this instead of working makes you feel uncomfortable, you have just discovered a very good reason to do exactly that.

So what are you going to notice today?

Trying to slow down and pay more attention in the Heartland ….

John
