We tend to be busy all day, and when we come home we continue to be busy. We cook; we clean; and we putter around. Or we are so tired of being busy that we want to do something mindless and easy, like watching a television show, or taking a nap. Then, we go back to being busy. There is a way to feel refreshed and alert without being busy. All we need is a gentle reminder—a location, an image, or a sound—to help us return home to ourselves and pay attention to what is there inside us and around us. We can touch the present moment in all its fullness and joy if we simply have a place, and a way, to stop.
So today whilst completing some paperwork, mowing the lawn, and cleaning the house - my gentle reminder will be my beautiful view!
