Savor the Moment
Gaze upon something you find beautiful in nature or
notice the aroma of that first cup of tea or coffee,
or appreciate the way a long-time clothing companion feels to wear it.
No need to look far as we can take opportunity in the everyday things.
Once you make a choice on what to savor at the moment,
take a comfortable, stable posture and become still.
For just a few minutes, tune in deeply to how paying attention to your chosen object or experience really feels. Does it change your expression or alter how you are posturing your body in some way as you behold it? Notice what about your choice drew you to choose it. Try to sense this more than think it. Shape, texture, color, symbolism, memorabilia, etc.
No place else to go, nothing else to do but stay with this experience for a little while longer.
This is savoring. Taking in what we might otherwise overlook in the
moment with lingering attention. Soaking in the moment to allow a more
conscious appreciation of what you appreciate. May you savor often.
