  1. 1) How does it feel to put your full attention on one breath? I realised, we take breathing for granted. 2)How does this practice impact your state of mind? When I put full attention on the breath, I felt calm.

  3. This week's question asks: What intention would you like to set for today? Take pause to consider what heartfelt intention you'd like to set for today - whether your day is just beginning or you are in the middle of it. Every moment is a chance to begin again. For me, in this moment, my intention is to be grateful for the small and large blessings that come my way. To be more attuned to the energy of appreciation as I move through the day. What about you?

  4. Wonderful to see you back here @Narmadha! Yes - we are ALWAYS beginning again, with each and every breath That is a lovely intention to hold. The beauty about mindfulness is we can come back to it any time. Looking forward to seeing more of your insights here in the community!

  7. That's inspiring, Gillian. My Intention today, is to take a Mindful Pause before I react to a situation; reacting will only place me in an Amygdala Hi-Jack. Not that that is my usual style, just that I am more aware today. Sometimes, I will saunter to my backyard and just view the clouds in the sky or just listen to the birds...there are many mindful moments about communing in Nature that awaits us if we just stop and be present.

  9. Your reflection is absolutely beautiful, Gillian. This exercise helps to stay in the “now”. It led me and it seems, you,to a mini meditation from light to love. I am going to let this happen often. Thank you. Daniel

  10. At this moment,The Sun is blazing over my flier Haden which I see through the three windows in my kitchen where I sit. The inside light is muted by the overhang of the roof. Shiite, I see clearly.

  11. 'Adopt the pace of nature:her secret is patience'. Ralph Waldo Emerson. Gillian used this quote recently and it is very appropriate for me these days as I am trying to slow down my pace of life and spend more precious time 'being' and not trying to be 'doing' as is my nature. As I have wound down my work I am at some moments restless and fearful of growing lazy ( work ethics were drilled into me from childhood). Patience with myself is where I must start, I guess. What mindfulness techniques do you use to quell restlessness?

  12. Lovely heart calling, Jhana. Thank you for sharing. And thank you for bringing this question back into my awareness to sit with. As I reflect on it myself, the following phrases come: Take care today. Walk tenderly upon the earth. Inhale and exhale love in equal measure.

  13. What is my heart asking me for today? To be more contented. Just to enjoy 'being' and not needing always to be 'doing'.

  14. At this moment,The Sun is blazing over my my garden which I see through the three windows in my kitchen where I sit. The inside light is muted by the overhang of the roof. Still, I see clearly. I recall the effort of digging each hole for the seventeen new plants. I tended them with care adding new soil, potting soil and older soil to plant them well. I watered them and I see they are thriving. I feel grateful that they are. My wife loves the plants and flowers. She compliments me on my work and the good outcome. I thrive in response. A bit farther away from me in the kitchen, I see a small ceramic rendering of a Quail sitting on an indoor plant stand, next to an African Violet I have had for 32 years. The Quail’s body was painted black while on top of that the artist covered it with white spheres of various sizes. Somehow the result is that the quail seems covered in feathers! Tseme, the artist, living in Toas pueblo, where we met her, made us an offer. If we sent her a picture of the Quail in our home, she would say a prayer for us. We sent her the picture. Every time I look at the Quail I feel gratitude and I feel her prayer. Daniel

  15. Hi Gillian, I love this quote from the Adveita Vedanta Swami Sarva pri anananda “beyond intellect, beyond mind, beyond silence, beyond stillness, beyond Om, there is pure consciousness”. I believe it is to be found in the act of meditation with complete openness. If we can relax into the Now, the rest will happen. Daniel
