MINDFUL STEPS ON SHIFTING SANDS

Each step we take is into the ‘unknown’ … into an experience that has not happened yet… no matter how similar the experience seems to a memory of a previous time … it is always a new ‘moment’ in time.

👣There is always a freshness to be experienced in each moment… It is only when we are truly present, that we can experience this freshness, this newness.

👣Every moment is somewhat unpredictable, no matter how similar it may seem, it is always fresh with new possibilities.

👣The sands are always sifting, giving us never-ending moments to examine our habitual thinking and to accept life’s invitation to perceive each moment with fresh eyes. 

👣Mindfulness gives us the skills to approach each moment with fresh eyes and a ‘Beginners Mind’ … so we begin to recognize and witness the uniqueness of each moment. When we do this ‘gratitude’ and awe naturally arise in us moment by moment by moment.
