A = Attention
How can paying attention add new greater meaning to life?
Duh! That seems like such a rhetorical question, doesn’t it?
In their book, Spiritual Literacy, with a sub-title of “Reading the Sacred in Everyday Life,” authors Mary Ann and Frederic Brussat wrote: “Pay attention. Stay awake and totally alert. See with receptive eyes and discover a world of ceaseless wonders.”
What are some “ceaseless wonders” that add meaning to your days?
Do you pay special attention to:
- daily sunrises?
- trees in bloom?
- grass greening?
- ocean waves?
- wild animals?
- the unconditional love of precious pets
- the companionship of friends
- the laughter of children?
- a beautiful, nutritional meal?
- a warm, comfortable bed?
- a beautiful sunset?
Paying attention to these and other “ceaseless wonders”
WILL add meaning to your life.
What other “ceaseless wonders” are a part of your daily observations?
How do they add greater meaning to your life?
See you tomorrow…
What would you list as your “B” word
for adding meaning to
and defining purpose in your life?
