Lenten Living suggestion #4

Cultivating Mindfulness


"These days, it seems like most people (myself among them) are walking around in a state of semi-wakefulness or even complete 'sleepwalking.'  I myself fail to notice things around me from the smallest (my wife asking me to pick up milk on my way home from work or the drivers around me on the interstate) to the largest (loved ones and others who are in need of my help).


I have committed to practice regular mindfulness meditation to sharpen my observation skills and my ability to respond genuinely, coupled with a close study of the Gospels to see what is it that Jesus observes, notices, responds to, gets indignant over, gets emotionally involved in.  What an example!  I could learn who and what is worthy of my attention by watching Christ!"
