Lose your mind and come to your senses.  – Fredrick S. Perls

 

FOCUS:  30 Days of Thanks

Today, I am thankful for my 5 senses.  As humans we spend so much time caught up in our thoughts and emotions that we often forget to stay in tune with our most primal human qualities.  Our senses can tell us so much about the world around us, and yet to really notice them we must quiet our minds and exist in the present moment.  Imagine how much richer our lives would be if we slowed down just a bit to really see, smell, taste, hear and touch the people, places and objects that exist in our lives everyday.

“Rather than being your thoughts and emotions, be the awareness behind them.  Become conscious of being conscious.”  – Eckhart Tolle
