Mindfulness at play
When I was a kid,
I remember my mom
cleaning house furiously
and midway through,
sitting down in the living room
on the cracked
with a cup of hot coffee
and a lit cigarette,
This was my introduction
to meditation.Geri Wilimek, We Sit
Meditation cushions, classes, and structured events are great. They provide a framework as we turn toward mindfulness. What are some other ways we might also pause with intention?
Go for a walk (without earbuds). Listen to the rain on the roof (with the TV off). Spend some time in a chair (with no screens or books).
Just be, for a moment. Or two. Be not afraid to just be with your own self. And see what arrives — or doesn’t.
Don’t worry, this is not laziness. Pausing is not irresponsibility. No worries that we’ll turn into slackers. But dare I say there might be a lesson in here for me about standing down, about finding balance?
Attention. Intention. Application. Reflection. Introspection. Contemplation. Intervention. Suspension. Perception. Ascension.
How might a moment of mediation look, today? I will practice being present while brushing my teeth. What will you try?
