I want to try something different.
A different way to connect with you. Blogging (writing), speaking AND using my own meditative nature photography to deepen a topic.
Why you ask?
As you know my Life’s Purpose is to teach and model being intimate with the wisdom inside every moment and every breath. I just learned that technically, a moment is 90 seconds long. Jezz who knew!!!
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I am sure you have heard that one before. But have you ever wondered how many thoughts we have in one minute? Well guess what..the average person has about 48.6 thoughts per minute, according to the Laboratory of Neuro Imaging at the University of Southern California. That adds up to a total of 70,000 thoughts per day. AHHH no wonder we get exhausted and ungrounded.
I am going on about this for a good reason. When I shot this photo in California this Spring, I wondered what was going through this guy’s mind. His interest and intensity were apparent. Of course any surfer will tell you he is considering the rip tides of the beach. Knowing how the water is flowing is the difference between life and death. Still maybe it wasn’t that…
Taking the time to “take in the scene around you” will only serve you. Breathing deeply three times is one way I have found to become present to the moment. I have been known to jump without thinking or hitting the send button without meticulously reading and re-reading my post only to discover a spelling mistake after it has gone viral. Groan.
What are some of the ways you have discovered to bring yourself into stillness – present – a groundedness which is unshakeable. Such a more empowered way to walk into a crowded room, have a conversation with your spouse, or meet a new wave of adventure head on.
Let me know. Send me a few comments so I can create an inspirational list to share.
Hope you like the new format and want to share it on your Facebook page or with your friends. I am still trying to get LIKES to my Connect2inspire Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/inspirationconnect2inspire.
