Mindfulness … Once we find it, we carry it carefully as a bright cup of water and a new loaf of bread.

Teacher as Transformer

When we remain mindful to the world and others, we stumble upon people and things to love. Once we find it, we carry it carefully as a bright cup of water and a loaf of bread.

Moya Cannon suggested that being mindful keeps us open to what might be overlooked. We find the extraordinary in the ordinary, the unexpected places and times. We learn to become mindful and attentive over time, knowing we cannotย  always be mindful.

The commonplace waits for us to notice its extraordinary beauty and sensuousness. We find it in the sweet taste of theย  water and the inviting smell of freshly baked bread. Those seemingly ordinary people and things become the purse of gold.

Some of what we love

we stumble upon โ€”

a purse of gold thrown on the road,

a poem, a friend, a great song.

And more

discloses itself to us โ€”

  4. For me, photography is an external exercise akin to mindfulness. This toy I carry is like a lens of appreciation – I am so much more likely to see the beautiful in the commonplace. It is as if the camera is a trick by the Universe to move me to more engagement.
