The Other Venice

How often do we actually pay attention to what we are doing?  Are we remembering past events with regret or wishing things would turn out a certain way in the future?  When someone is speaking to us, are we listening or waiting to say something?

So much of our thoughts are consumed with remembering the past or imagining the future with dread or hope that we lose sight of what is happening to us in the present moment.  We are sleepwalking through life.  Since our thoughts consist of lies and do not help us with our present situation, our time and energy is wasted.  We are missing out on the grace and beauty of Life.  Not to mention all the miracles we could be experiencing.

When we slow down and pay attention to what is happening in the present moment, we are in harmony with our Divine nature.  We see the beauty in small things.  We experience the peace which comes from slowing down and paying attention.  We are more productive.

Let's be mindful of what we are doing.
