Description

Live each and every moment of your life. When talking to others, pay attention to them and to what they say. When alone, notice the things around you and the flow of your thoughts. When studying, engage with the subject and every word on the page.

In this way, immerse yourself in everything you do. Live life both one moment at a time and with a sense of the greater forces and meaning above and around you.

If this seems difficult or unattractive as a philosophy, do it in short bursts. Take time-outs to relax. Learn to meditate. Go to an internal art class such as Tai Chi.

Discussion

Many of us live our lives casually, as if we have time for everything or that little really matters. We dream of the future and while away the present.

Yet our lives are finite and each moment is a gift that can be enjoyed and give individual meaning, let alone the realization we can find of being part of a greater system.

When we live richly, mindfully harvesting the potential of the time we have, we can be much, much happier.

In this deep state time seems to disappear as we engage and, when we 'awake', are surprised at just how long we have been in what has been called a state of 'flow'.

And if this seems too much, just short periods of contemplation and slowing down can punctuate our lives with periods of stress relief, grounding us in moments when we can reconnect with our selves and remember who we are.
