Life has become hectic, insanely fast, noisy and crowded with competing desires. Ironically, slowing down leads to a fuller life. The secret to living intensely is to know you are alive NOW. Living moments is not easy; it takes practice. Breath and be glad you are alive today, right now. The more you stop and notice what is around you and appreciate whatever you can in any minute, the bigger life becomes. Begin the day again, any time.
I couldn't agree more! I went from an extremely stressful career (lawyer) to now being an online editor of My Meditation Garden, a site created for other stressed out professionals, parents, college students, who have forgotten or have never learned how to stop and take a breath.
