This week I resolve to attempt to give my full attention to the outer icing instead of thinking about how good the rich and creamy filling in the center will be/ usually is. I will do this by identifying a situation in my life that regularly causes my mind to wander to thoughts about the future, or to replay moments from the past. What is it about this situation that I’m avoiding? What is the common theme behind the thoughts and stories that my mind creates about this situation? Why does this situation [piece of broccoli] affect me, but others don’t? By doing this, I am making a conscious decision to understand myself and harness my power to be [present in the moment]. Slowly, slowly, the veils are lifting.
