UP Close and Personal 2.0

Did you really ever look at something? Really look? Get up close and personal? Here is an opportunity to get close – real close and see what can often be missed. Look now at the detail, the expression, the color, the texture – close but not too close so that the “thing” is still recognizable for what it is.

Looking closely at a thing, at life, at friendship, at one’s past; seeing the many fine details that make the whole, can give a new appreciation, a new understanding, a new perspective, a renewed purpose to move on and live again more fully, being whole again.

Mindfulness

Mindfulness

Taking in each moment,

        whether it is the beauty, the horror, the sense of awe

                         or of pain:

         whether it is a sight, a sound, a smell, a touch:

         whether it is looking and really “seeing” in the littlest thing,

                          or in the vastness of the larger before you:

1.lg sunrise.6 1.14.15

Ingesting, breathing in – deeply,

          totally engulfed in the NOW of existence:

Resting in the present – meditating – “being”:

If you do not do this each day – that means today –

     and do not make this a practice in your life – trust me;

     you will never be fully alive –

     but rather only living on the veneer

     of what you could become.

Thoughts from Jack – The Gardener
