Our fullest attention is our deepest expression of Love. – J. Krishnamurti
In nature we never see anything isolated, but everything in connection with something else which is before it, beside it, under it and over it. – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Connection: some synonyms are: link, relationship, relation, interconnection, interdependence, association.
Here we are on the computer talking about connection. Where is your neighbor at this moment? Your partner? Your colleagues? Your family and friends, even your pets?
How do you connect with them? Text, Talk, Face time? Or special “life” time?
What is the depth and quality you bring to these relationships?
Your undivided attention and awareness even for a short time is so valuable. Are you talking on the phone when you are walking your dog or cooking, or do you give each happening its own special attention?
Life can be one big hurry thing, running from one event to the next one… or it can also be this endless Present Moment awareness were we fully enjoy and experience everything that is going on right here right now.
How to connect better to this moment?
Set an Intention to do only one event at the time
Pause and take a deep breath
Plan your time
Be Kind to yourself
Look the person you are with in the eye,
Smell a flower
Take a bubble bath
Light a candle
Take another deep breath
Move, sing, dance, stretch
and Be Present
