In the absence of mindfulness, there is an amassing of thought, akin to its counterpart in nature, ponding, the pooling of unwanted waters.
To live where water is on the flow and impermanence on the fly is the life experience. It is living mindfully, an endless practice.
The mindful life may be the most difficult one. Staying open to change, trusting in its inevitability, greeting its flow with an open heart.
Yet, “the changes we dread most may contain our salvation” (Barbara Kingsolver).
Eternal is the rhythm of tide and time, the essence of living richly in the present.
