This event felt like the universe was speaking to me, reminding me about the importance of being in the present moment. As we rush about through our days, in too much of a hurry to say “I love you” on the way out the door, too caught up in our busy-ness to hold a door open for a stranger or return the smile of a small child – when we spend more time looking at our phones than at the world around us – we diminish our connection to the present. We lose our ability to be present.
There are some things in our life that we can’t change. Little that we control. Practicing mindfulness in any or all of its forms can help create a peaceful life. Sending out waves of kindness is an easy way to help instill some inner quiet and brings more kindness rippling back to you.
Lying fallow is a way to renew ourselves, our thoughts, and our spirits. Usually when we are stressed and overwhelmed the last thing we think about is taking time out. We rush from one thing to another with no space in between. The best time to take a fallow moment is when you think you don’t have time to.
