Where’s Your Focus
“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have. Make the Now the primary focus of your life.” – Eckhart Tolle
My “Team” decided to take a light-hearted approach to this mandala’s title. Letting us know, whenever possible (and it’s always possible), the importance of lighten-ing up.
So…these days we live in a world of multi-multi-multi-tasking, with places to go, people to see, things to do, blah blah blah. We jump from one thing to the next as if in a pinball machine resulting in things being messed up or missed, causing undo stress and anxiety. In other words…”no joy in Mudville”.
Today’s mandala encourages us to focus on being fully present with each task at hand, whether it’s running errands, filing reports, building a house, or taking a bath. Focus-Focus-Focus!
Looking at the before image of this mandala, a variety of orbs in various shapes and sizes wander aimlessly all over the paper, each begging for individual attention. On the other hand, the mandala version appears to sort them, making them seem less overwhelming and easier to manage…ie: more focused.
BTW…It’s okay for us to have as many “tasks” as we want (although we might look into delegating or saying “no” more) however when doing them, let’s find a way to be 100% present with each task; giving it the full attention it deserves. In doing so, we have a greater opportunity of becoming more aware of any insights and guidance that can help us to do it better, faster, and easier…AND we may find that we end up enjoying it more.
