time with family and being present
May 11, 2013 § Leave a comment
Life is speeding by again. I think back to how we were just visiting family, baptizing our children, and yet it feels like that happened several months ago already. I need to slow down that inner clock and take it all in. I kind of feel like I do when I’m in the middle of a wonderful event, taking pictures. It’s not the best. You’re taking pictures and you’re there but you are not really connected. There’s the lens between you and the people or event that you are documenting. There. It’s actually that word, “documenting” that seems to be the problem. Anyhow, I’m still a student when it comes to living in the present. Oddly enough, that’s one lesson that you don’t want to stress out too much over, it takes away from all the regulated breathing and mind-taming.
Love and light,
