The conveyor belt

One step at a time is all that life requires.

All too often our mind is already several steps, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and sometimes even years ahead of the moment we are in.

This results in us not even being conscious of the moment we are in.

The mind is perhaps looking forward to dinner or a date or a holiday (maybe not now!!) so the ‘ordinary’ moment is denied and not noticed. The trouble is, when we are at dinner or the date, instead of appreciating that moment, the mind has already moved on.

This process, if left uninterrupted, leads to a lifetime of never appreciating our real life that is now.

Our mind can become a conveyor belt that whisks us past our real life in a constant blur of thought.

Stop the conveyor and jump into this moment.
