Mindfulness is the energy of awareness. It’s being conscious of the existing moment. Of living life deeply throughout each day and being fully alive, right here, right now. It is connecting with what we do and also with what and who is around us.
Jon Kabat-Zinn puts it a bit better
‘Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment and non judgmentally’
This is my pet Thomas, a very relaxed and loving cat.
He gives me love, warmth and many purrs to keep me happy.
A pet does wonders!
Often we walk around not seeing the beauty along the road.
Have a look here!
A thank you to my sister for being able to use her Beauty – ful pictures.
Beauty is all around us.
Lie on the grass and observe the birds flying,
listen to the rustling of the leaves in the wind,
see the little bud of a small daisy flower coming out,
follow the bee how it travels through a flower,
watch the flower move in the breeze
enjoy the colourful butterfly circling round in the air.
Watching a flower grow is an amazing treat with timelapse
even what we regard as a weed looks wonderful in nature.
“Around us, life bursts with miracles–a glass of water, a ray of sunshine, a leaf, a caterpillar, a flower, laughter, raindrops. If you live in awareness, it is easy to see miracles everywhere. Each human being is a multiplicity of miracles. Eyes that see thousands of colors, shapes, and forms; ears that hear a bee flying or a thunderclap; a brain that ponders a speck of dust as easily as the entire cosmos; a heart that beats in rhythm with the heartbeat of all beings. When we are tired and feel discouraged by life’s daily struggles, we may not notice these miracles, but they are always there.”
― Thích Nhất Hạnh
Nancy from Strawberryindigo posted this this morning on Facebook and I love it so I like to share it with you all.
I saw some buds on a tree outside and had already a little Spring feeling.
and it is weekend hurray…..
Sunshine when I got up so I decided to do the shopping,
Reached the shop, it was pouring with rain, and terribly windy and cold
Got the shopping in,
totally dark outside now,
so I decide to dance to some music. Made me warm and happy. Music is magic!
Sunshine back out,
do some washing, have a cappuccino,
and the next downpour is here.
Exercise on my exercise bicycle and see the beautiful rainbow.
Sun back out….. for how long…… ???
I say thank you for the rain, thank you for the sunshine, thank you for the music, thank you for the rainbow.
Thank you for all the miracles I have around me.
“Each morning when you open your eyes, think only three things: Thank you, Thank you, Thank you”
I bought some scones , jam and double cream for a cream tea later….
why don’t you join me?
with an old song I always loved….The Riddle, different version….
Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves – slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future; live the actual moment. Only this moment is life.
Thich Nhat Hanh
Mindfulness is Buddha’s word for meditation. By mindfulness he means: you should always remain alert, watchful. You should always remain present. Not a single thing should be done in a sort of sleepy state of mind…. you should move with a sharp consciousness. – Osho
Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you’ll land among the stars. – Les Brown
