Real Life Mindfulness author Becca Anderson has a reminder for us all to be present in our lives and to take time to appreciate everything that we have been given.
In a true you-and-I relationship, we are present mindfully,
nonintrusively, the way we are present with things in
nature. We do not tell a birch tree it should be more like
an elm. We face it with no agenda, only an appreciation
that becomes participation: “I love looking at this birch,”
becomes “I am this birch,” and then, “I and this birch are
opening to a mystery that transcends and holds us both.”
