There will always be something that needs to be done, i.e., cleaning, repairs and other chores.There will always be something that will direct our attention away from what we initially set out to do. John Lennon said it best when he said, “Life happens while we are busy making other plans.” This quote implies that we miss out on our life because we are stuck in our head. Unfortunately, there are too many of us that do just that. In fact, I used to be one of them. They wake up one day and wonder where the last five years went, let alone where the last five minutes went.
Because there will always be something, the secret is to become aware of the blissful moments in our life.
It is in these blissful moments where we find our inner being and it is in our being where we find joy. When we must be doing something, the secret is in the here and now. When we are present with the task at hand, we open the door to allow consciousness to flow through us. When we allow consciousness to flow through us, we gain a sense of aliveness, an alertness that we didn’t have before. Thus, we do a better job at whatever we are doing. When we begin to hear chatter in our mind, Dorothy says to bring our attention back to our breath. Because our breath is always in the Now, it takes only a few deep conscious breaths to get us back to the present moment. Doing in the Now, being present no matter what, is the something that we must begin to do at once. Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️
