This Instruction May Seem Simple, Yet it is Very Profound

Make this week a week to be mindful of your diet.

Not just the food you take in, but what you take into all of your senses — into your eyes, ears, nose, mouth and sense of touch. breathing exercise

What kind of diet are you feeding your senses?

Are they on sensory overload from too much interaction with digital devices? Is there too much time with the news?

What good things might you bring into your diet? Is there music you’d like to listen to? The touch of a loved one? A specific food or maybe a beautiful landscape?

Allow today to be the day, in this Now Moment, to start feeding a life of meaning.
