This back and forth kind of reading indicates what a challenge mindfulness is for me. My concentration darts about like a kite in the wind, or the standings of baseball team, or popcorn in the pan. So, once again I am going to try to concentrate on mindfulness.
In the the forward to this book, Thich That Hanh writes, “The secrets of living in mindfulness can be summed up in three words: understand, feel and practice, over and over.” I’m trying to imprint that on brain so when I am mindful enough to remember, I will do just that.
Today, as I took these pictures in my yard, I did my best to mindfully understand, feel and practice.
