Contemplative Monday


SEEING OURSELVES


"One of the main discoveries of meditation is seeing


how we continually run away from the present moment,


how we avoid being here just as we are.


That's not considered to be a problem. The point is to see it."


The above quote taken from Heart Advice: Weekly Quotes from Pema Chodron.

  1. I love being "just as I am".
    Although I could stand to be a little taller. And maybe a little thinner. With maybe less freckles. Oh, and I'd love to have grey eyes with maybe more hair on top. But otherwise, I'm fine!

    1. They are brass water chimes....they collect the rain and sway with the wind making different sounds due to the different amounts water is in each.

  5. My special time for me to contemplate and escape-- is the 40 minutes I spend driving to and from work. If I lived only 5 minutes from work- I would probably be crazy!
