What do you think about all the talk about ‘Mindfulness’ these days ? It is a simple concept. At one time, as young children, we were all mindful. The concept of Mindfulness, at its core, is simply paying attention, being in the ‘now’. We need to pay attention to the present, to what is happening in each moment. Many of us are living hurried, distracted lives , and are complaining about being stressed. For Christians, we need to train ourselves to be aware of God being with us at every moment. This does take practise, but Christ promises us his peace if we stay focused on his presence with us, and his care for us in every circumstance. Like me, my son is mindful. He is highly intuitive, and has a phenomenal memory.
I recently sent him this picture I posted, and asked if he remembered it being taken. He recalled exactly what was happening. He was looking at an empty film container. We used film in cameras in those days.
May God grant us the grace to pay attention to the moments of our lives, as they are passing.
