Nothing I planned to do this holiday break quite worked out. Uncharacteristically we had a snow storm that hit on the eve of Thanksgiving. Dinner was postponed and everyone in the city spent the afternoon shoveling snow.
I also spent the week replacing a car that had been barely totaled from a rear-end collision a few weeks ago. Schedules. Not for the light-hearted.
The Prompt: The Moment or the Mind
This week's prompt:
"You can have the mind or you can have the moment."
- Naval Ravikant
First task is to sit for a meditation on that for 5-10 minutes or however long you feel is good to you.
...inspired by my drawing:
Always the wind blows
softly through your hair, always,
even in the lull
Sometimes life gets exiting in its string of random moments. Sometimes you just have to ride the wave and let go of the rest of it, the plans, the control.
Let the whole intention derail and then, what ever spot you've been tossed and landed, what ever snow drift you find yourself hurled upon: enjoy it, pay attention to it. As Herman Melville said, "It is not down on a map. True places never are."
No map got you here! What a blessing!
Now your turn.
