Some questions…. ideas and images that fit together. You may want to build you own bridges.
Look where I’m going. A reflection on my impatience….
Thich Nhat Hanh told this story1 about savoring the present moment. My recollection of his talk….
People are rushing around, rush, rush to get somewhere. I wonder, why the rush? After all where are we all going? … Why rush to get there?
Yes, we all get there. …no need to rush. Thich Nhat Hanh’s reminds us of our final destination. And asks the why question.
How to conduct myself? Checkpoints.
These four succinct guides that could expand to hundreds of words.
Four rules for life: Show up. Pay attention. Tell the truth. Don’t be attached to the results.
-Arrien from the Makumozo! archives:
Every day I ask these questions about my choices.
This or that?
If I do this, what does it eliminate?
Question And Reflection Three
Shawn Blanc sent an e-mail to promote a video course.
He introduce the course.
Consider the following:
Health in one area of our life brings about greater health in the other areas.
When we live out our values (by aligning them with our time and decisions) we can reach our greatest potential with the most joy in the journey.
We have a limited amount of energy each day. Thus in order to focus deeply on one or two important areas of life, we need a way to keep the other areas on track as well.
And therein lies the power of a focused life.
This statement reminded me to ask the bigger questions about health. …going beyond acbigger questions about health. …going beyond aches and pains.
Shawn asks a follow-up question.
Do you have strength and health in every area of your life? (finances, relationships, career, rest, physical health, inner personal)
What do you think? Do these ideas resonate?
I live, which is the main point.
