COT
“If you make where you are going more important than where you are, there may be no point in going.” – Alan Watts
Slick
– This resonates with all of us as there is always things to worry about/prepare for in the future pulling you one way; and always things from your past haunting you or pushing you to rest on your laurels the other way. That doesn’t leave a lot of organic time to live in the space in front of you and around you fully. It’s easy to go through life living in our heads and not actually being present to the current moments. That current moment is truly the only reality there actually is. Everything else is a simulation of existence in our heads.
– I want to challenge the group to take time today to pause and come fully back into your body, and use all 5 of your senses at the same time. Hear the sounds around you, feel the air on your skin and face, smell and taste what is around, and see what is in front of you with conscious awareness.
– It isn’t often we are living in-tune with all 5 sense at the same time, but it is intoxicating to do so!
– There is a natural rhythm of planning and processing that needs to happen as humans, but it is our mission to increase the amount of time in our day we are living fully present with all of our senses so as to not waste away that opportunity.
