Too often we think about everything constantly and rarely allow ourselves to just simply “be” in the moment. This is because we are always thinking about dozens of other things.
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 because we capture so much and see so little.
The world is a beautiful place and it’s worthy of taking a few moments to appreciate. You don’t even 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. Oftentimes we visualize and meditate without even knowing it.
Have you ever daydreamed about something so intently that time seems to have stopped?
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.
