Morning meditation: enjoying the graceful, exotic curves of this tree outside the window of my hospital room, as perfect as any Japanese painting.

Babilu: Contemplative Groove 

Fractured_Buddhist Poet 

I noticed that since I started paying attention to the small moments, life seems so much easier, less overwhelming and stressful, more connected and at peace. I guess that's what mindfulness is about.

It's not about paying attention to the 'present moment' as a unit of time, but to the 'present moment' of experience, as an attention to detail, texture, color, sound and light.

The Buddhist view is that the world is always in a superposition between the real and the not-real. And I am in a superposition between self and not-self. The Universe is in a superposition of existence and non-existence.

I’ve decided to focus on the really small moments of life that bring joy. Not the Facebook/Instagram moments, not the weddings and graduations and landing the big job moments. The really small barely noticed moments that make taking the next breath worthwhile.
