What Could Be; What Might Be; If Only...

What Could Be; What Might Be; If Only... | Unplug | Scoop.it
Imagine, what a relief! Finally, we can live without expectation, prejudice or longing, or the desire for things to be different than they are.
Susan Taylor's insight:

What could be; what might be; if only...We tend to spend our time living in "these worlds."  Slippery, elusive distractions from being in the present moment.

 

Yet the truth of the matter is the past is gone and we never really know what the future will bring.  No matter how much "we plan, plot and arrange..we still never know what will happen in the next moment". 

 

Contrary to what you might think, living in the here and now can be incredibly liberating.  "Being present invites a deep sense of completion that there really is nowhere else we need to be or go". 

 

So take a deep mindful breath and imagine a life without attachment, judgment or yearning.  Just be who you are where you are in this moment whatever it is...as it is.

"BE" Home for the Holidays

"BE" Home for the Holidays | Unplug | Scoop.it
It's the most wonderful—and stressful—time of the year. Read on to learn how mindfulness can help over the holidays.
Susan Taylor's insight:

There's no place like home for the holidays.  And if you truly want to "be" home for the holidays, instead of feeling overwhelmed -- try a new approach -- one that involves less "doing" and more "being". 

 

Mindfulness can help!

 

  • Place your attention on gratitude instead of instant gratification.
  • Deal with gift giving and consumption in a more mindful way.
  • Take advantage of less sunlight, contemplating what can only be seen in the dark.
  • Instead of going on autopilot, use the "season for connecting" to do just that -- without technology.
  • Slow down; focus on what is important to you; and spend time sharing with others
