What’s there for you right now, this very moment as you are reading this? Perhaps you are thinking: you don’t have time for this, deadlines are looming, your next meeting, the phone call you have to make, what to eat for lunch, the relief you’ll feel at the end of the day, why you haven’t heard back from someone, was it something I said or did?
What’s there for you right now? Perhaps it’s a feeling: overwhelmed, calm, happy, sad, frustrated, neutral, passionate, excited.
What’s there for you right now? Perhaps you are noticing sensations in the body: tightness in the jaw, a slight headache, hunger pangs, muscle soreness from a workout, discomfort at the feet longing for more comfortable shoes.
Suggested practice this week: check in with yourself
Over the week, take a few moments during the day, pause and breath, arriving in the moment.
- Notice the thoughts that are arising, perhaps note any feelings.
- As you become aware of your state of being, notice the sensations of the body.
- What would it be like to notice what is there for you, without judgment?
- What would it be like to let go of trying to change anything and simply witness what is arising? Eating lunch when you eat lunch, or walking, senses open, simply walking, feeling the ground beneath your feet, the gentle movements of your arms, the breath as you move through space.
Simply being, and letting the whole of life pass through your senses, transforming you!
