WE CAN THINK OF MINDFULNESS…
the act of paying attention on purpose and without judgment, as a kind of mental training to be more intentional with our lives. Think about how the act of priming works: If the morning starts out with worries about all the work to do that day and the mind keeps practicing worrying, then when you get to work, everything you see will be regarded through an anxious lens…..therefore….
If you get some bad news and feel bummed out and practice rehearsing the difficulties of your situation, those are the glasses of perception that you wear. I’m not judging this process of perception as good or bad; I’m just pointing out the reality of how this works.
Sit down, tune to your heart and write your 2015 intention for every aspect of your well-being….take you time in quietness with nobody around.
INTENTION SHAPES OUR THOUGHTS AND WORDS.
THOUGHTS AND WORDS MOLD OUR ACTIONS.
THOUGHTS, WORDS, AND ACTIONS SHAPE OUR BEHAVIORS.
BEHAVIORS SCULPT OUR BODILY EXPRESSIONS.
BODILY EXPRESSIONS FASHION OUR CHARACTER.
OUR CHARACTER HARDENS INTO WHAT WE LOOK LIKE
Gandhi said, “Be the change you want to see in the world.” That starts with intention. Consider, in this moment, how you want to be in this world. How might you remind yourself to be more intentional about that?
You might practice this: “Breathing in, I open to my intention; breathing out, I let it be.”
Create your template of success first….and take mindful action afterwards.
