“Thoughts come and go. Feelings come and go. Find out what it is that remains.”
I have always loved to journal my thoughts. Not always daily but consistent over the years. There are times when all my writing is about feelings, emotions, or aspirations. Too often I focus on the past or the future. Forgetting the present. Not the present as in today, but that the time is Now and the where is Here.
After reading some of John Muir’s nature writings it hit me. Take some time daily to journal about the moment. What is going on in your own backyard.
I found that taking just 10-20 minutes to immerse myself in my environment brings me clarity. A clarity about how simple life can be, and how easy it is to loss sight of it.
