Life is made up of a series of simply things that we can enjoy from moment to moment. What are some of the simple joys that you have everyday that make up the fabric of your life? Some of my daily simple joys are:
Feeling the sun on my face. Feeling the wind or breeze all over my body. Looking up and seeing the clouds slowly move by, morphing into different shapes. Looking up at night at the stars and feeling the vast depths of space. Paying attention to my breathing. Closing my eyes and looking inward.
Thank you for bringing this topic up. Indeed, it's the appreciation of these simple things that bring us into the moment and creates presence.
Thanks Zeninfinity. I'm glad that you found this topic beneficial. I think contemplating on some of the simple things really help us see what lovely lives we have. I too enjoy paying attention to my breathing and feeling the aliveness within. :0)
My comfy bed, My spouse being someone i like having around (mostly), Dinner and Netflix, the amazing view from our balcony, fresh air and safety 7 security of this new country that we moved to couple years ago, playing games on my ipad, being able to sleep in on weekends, that perfect starbucks coffee and a walk during busy work day, and so on
Thanks Seeker! That's really cool that you moved to a few country recently and is able to enjoy some of the aspects of your new country. Sleeping in on weekends, I agree, is heavenly.
I've been outside all afternoon sitting, laying down, eyes open, eyes closed ...... being with the chorus of all of nature .
Really , simple Being, which is really "all there is", regardless of any ideas of it.
Just being, dropping any stories of what may mean what or who may be who and where may be where.... forget even forgetting and be the fullness of Being.
An interesting note that it seem in some way or form, we all appreciate some form of Nature. Nature has a way calming the incessant mind and allowing us to fully experience the present moment.
Putting lucky Pennies everywhere I go for people to find and feel good
Helping people I don't even know
Waking up to my cats Purr and my dogs kisses
And most important: Setting next to my wife
