French Mum, humanitarian, restless explorer and doer on sabbatical in Cebu (Philippines): one Attila in each arm, I am exploring the “toddlers safe” corners of the region, while trying to keep some room for Me.
Roads were made for journeys. Not for destination – Confucius
What do you see on this picture?
Either you focus on the stairs .. or on the journey and Mother Nature’s beautiful treats.
My kids have forced me to always practice a panoramic vision. The moment they see a stair, they start complaining and obviously fighting for my arms. That was cute when they were babies, but quickly become quite annoying (to put it nicely) when they turned toddlers.
So I had to find a way to make them forget about the damned stairs. By looking up for squirrels and nests, looking down for the most beautiful leaf, on the sides for the biggest bug .. We take detours, I try not to care about time, and the “too high and too sharp” stairs eventually evaporate in the scenery.
I recently read about Peripheral awareness and it made me smile to realise that what my kids taught me was also a meditation practice. It activates areas of the brain that facilitate a calm and relaxed sense of well-being in which we are able to disassociate from our thoughts in order to see things in a broader context
Want to give it a try? I know how busy you are, so it will take you hardly 5mn. Promise! Just press on play, forget about the video and just listen to Bodhipaksa. And take an extra minute to tell me how you are feeling 😉 Namaste!
