At one particular moment, we may feel that there are so many things we need to do at once. Our task list is endless, and we feel our time is limited. When we finally get down to do things we need to do, we get bogged down in trying to do a bit here and bit there. We leave our tasks incomplete in the attempt to finish them all at once. We are easily distracted and bored during the task therefore we forget the importance of the process. They say, “it’s not what you do but how you do it that matters.” We are so anxious to reach the destination; we forget to enjoy the journey.
“Step by step and the thing is done.” Charles Atlas
Enjoying the process of doing something is an essence of a task. Taking one step at a time and giving each step your complete attention can do wonder in your life. When your energy is focused and aligned in one direction, it brings out the creativity to all you do. What else is the creativity?! A free flow of energy, right?!
Creativity is a Free Flow of Energy
Developing the habit of narrowing down your energy through a funnel to focus on your task is a great power. Every moment in your life brings the possibility of totality. Totality is a state of being completely absorbed in that one moment you are currently experiencing. It is an experience of dropping that extra baggage of calculations that you do not require to live your life. Life is a package of small moments that you need open gently and slowly. Take your time!
Take One Step At A Time. Living your life with totality is a bliss!
If you wondering, how you can experience totality you need to be aware of your mind. Being present in one moment requires one to drop both past and future. There is famous quote by Zen master “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Living in the moment is a practice of mindfulness. If you find yourself surrounded by the clouds of thoughts and your vision seems hazy, you can return to the present moment by focusing on your breathing. Take a couple of deep breaths and just focus your mind on your inhaling and exhaling. This will align you with the present moment once again. Slowly you will start slipping out of that clutter of fruitless thoughts. If your surroundings are distracting you; bring your attention back to your own breaths.
Remember there is no need to be in hurry and run in a rat-race. Give each task your complete attention and enjoy the journey itself.
