The Mindful Minding of Our Time

Another beautiful day! This fall is busy (in a productive, joyful way) and I’ve been living with an expectant, anticipatory excitement. So much is in the works (but not yet complete) and I have a vested interest in what occurs, how it occurs, and remaining mindful throughout the process. It is a journey…

And, my friends, what isn’t? We forget that life, and time, is a continuum. Little (nothing?) happens in a vacuum, unaffected by what transpires before and after. The more aware our energy is in the present moment with the circumstance, people, and material before us, the more aware the outcome. Even when, perhaps especially when, those events and people are negative, miserable, adverse.

An inconsequential example: we don’t listen to the weather forecast or open a window or door to check the weather and go to work in a short sleeved shirt. There is an Arctic blast from Canada and the next day we wake sniffling and sneezing. Prevention? Attention – in this case to the weather forecast. But what about more significant issues like close relationships, finances, business? Not paying attention can be costly to one’s career, communications, and health. On the other hand, paying close attention to everything can be exhausting. What to do?

I will not be blogging for a few weeks – but upon my return I hope to arrive with renewed material and inspiration. And hopefully, mindfulness. In these next weeks, let’s think about how our lives might benefit from more mindfulness, what actions we can take in this regard, and reconvene for further discussion. Take notes. See you soon! Image
