“Stop and focus on something of beauty”
Today’s message is very simple. Today, stop and notice beauty. Multiple times throughout the day, stop, take a deep breath and focus completely, if only for a moment, on something of beauty.
This can be an object you carry in your pocket, a flower on your desk, a picture on the computer. But another wonderful way to do this is to focus on the beauty in the simple everyday objects that are a part of your life. When you pour that cup of coffee, notice how the bubbles push up against the edge of the cup and slowly dissipate. Your life is full of such little details, moments of which can be captured and focused upon, bringing you out of your busy mind and down into the life you are actually living, this moment, right now. And if you allow yourself, you will see that this everyday existence is full of beauty. It surrounds you and requires only that you notice it.
Small and simple, fleeting and on the periphery, the little things and times of beauty are all there, all around you, everywhere. A sky above as you walk across the parking lot, a little flower pushing though the sidewalk crack, a tree you walk beneath, shedding her leaves. The way your hand looks, the curve of your fingers, the lines in your palm—this alone could be worthy of a deep and peaceful meditation.
Breathe, focus, become one with the object of observation, deeper each time. Peace and beauty are there.
I Am This Today
Today, I open my eyes and heart to beauty. I see beauty in everything which surrounds me. I am aware.
I breathe deeply, come down into this moment and see the wonders within it. I am deeply grateful for this moment, right here, right now.
I am beauty. I am peace. I am.
