Mindfulness most easily arrives when we slow down the normally frantic pace of our daily lives. Running from obligation to obligation, as we think of everything else we have to do, leaves us in an altogether disembodied state.
Consider it – how much time do you spend each day actually aware of what you’re feeling?
Being immersed in your experience with all of your senses, instead of just being pulled along by your talking head?
With our attention most always set in the future, we tend to rush by what’s in front of us, skimming over it to get to the next task.
Something is lost when we do this. The quality of the moment in front of us is never actually known.
Through meditation, we practice resting in this moment, seeing what’s going, simply by doing nothing.
Just breathing, feeling into the moment. Bringing the quality of our focused attention to this exact point. Right now.
Quick Meditation Tip
Allow your meditation practice to inform the rest of your day by consciously bringing your attention to the breath periodically. Breathe in, breathe out, let go, relaxing into whatever is in front of you.
Quote From Adam
“Life is a series of moments. The quality of attention and action that we bring to each moment determines the quality of our lives.”
