Too often do we think – about everything – constantly. We rarely allow ourselves to just simply “be” in the moment without thinking about dozens of other things in the process.
We never gaze upon a beautiful landscape without taking a photo of it or having to tell someone about it. In the age of hyper-sharing, many beautiful things are shared but few memories of beauty are created. We capture so much yet see so little.
The world truly is a beautiful place and it’s worthy of taking a few moments to appreciate. You don’t have to be a spiritual or religious person to practice mindfulness and be present in a moment.
There is nothing scary, bigoted, or difficult about simply allowing yourself to experience a passing moment of time without forcing too many thoughts to scatter the experience.
Practicing and improving ones meditation skills are a great way to be present and achieve mindfulness, but oftentimes we visualize and meditate without even knowing it.
Have you ever daydreamed about something so intently that time seems to have stopped while you pictured one moment across what felt to be a thousand different timelines?
If so, you already reached one of the highest forms of meditative experience, and you did so naturally.
Whatever your spiritual or religious beliefs, mindfulness and spiritual thinking are an integral part of a successful and happy life. All you need to do is dream more and think less.
Thinking spiritually comes naturally to everyone.
I do get caught up in my thoughts constantly and my mind could sometimes use a break.
Exploring mindfulness and taking more moments each day to just be “in the moment” are both very important to me. I know that when I still my mind, breathe calmly, and awaken all of my senses to welcome the day I feel warmer, lighter, more refreshed and ready to achieve.
Any time I feel stressed out, burned out or I simply need a short recharge I will try to sit still, close my eyes, and slowly bring my wandering mind into willful control. That is my natural state of being.
Thinking spiritually is something I do every day without even knowing it.
