Sunny Morning  “Live in the Moment”

Practice “mindfulness” today and everyday…  Click to see video clip.

“Feelings of unworthiness, shame, and self-hatred seem to show up all too often in daily life – we see it in our work, our families, and maybe even experience it ourselves.

But there’s at least one person in the world who’s not especially familiar with such feelings. In fact, he didn’t even know the meaning of the word self-hatred.

Jack Kornfield, PhD, reveals more in the video below, and shares two strategies that can help people heal a negative self-image and learn to love themselves.

Take a look – it’s just over four minutes.”
I have written about the practice of “mindfulness” often on this blog.  After all the lunatic behavior from the US Congress the last two weeks, we should take a little time to heal and recover.  One of the best solutions is “living in the moment” by allowing yourself to be reminded of the best in life right now.  I looked out my living room window on this beautiful sunny morning and observed all the amazing birds of all kinds, including squirrels, dancing together in the tall fir trees and in the variety of flowering bushes and maple trees turning color right now.  I am also getting ready to take Skai for a walk out to the coastal trail to smell the refreshing salty sea air, watch the waves breaking on the basalt cliffs, and look for the spray of a gray whale in the distance.  The Central Oregon Coast where we live is one of the perfect places on the planet to practice mindfulness.  You can find your own escape or retreat anywhere just by taking a second look or turning a new corner for a walk to the closest park or water front in your community.  Take a little time right now, practice mindfulness and make your day the best it can be…
