Are You A Caring Person? A Gentle Touch

Share it Please

What did you see today that was beautiful?

That's the question I have used to focus my journey through today. It's a wonderful practice, and fascinating to watch my mind panic -- as if this exercise will somehow turn me into a uncaring person oblivious to the world's suffering. Just for one day to pay attention to "beautiful"? It felt a bit like taking a day off to do nothing - sometimes guilt arises, "You should be doing something." As if one day of nothing will somehow turn me into a lazy person.

What did I see today that was beautiful?

A lot. A whole lot. And it's not that the world disappeared, or that there weren't un-beautiful things around me. It's just that I gave a special place to "beautiful" in my looking today and feel so much more generous and hopefilled than yesterday.

  1. My son (1 year old) sharing pasta with his stuffed cow. To me it was just a beautiful little moment.

    I like your reminder to look for the beautiful, it's all around.

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
