I stop everything, bringing my attention easily from what I was doing to the experience of a sudden downpour.
I’ve found mindfulness in sudden downpour.
Summer storm pummels raindrops to the ground in a heavy blanket of near-solid water. I stop what I’m doing to simply observe this powerful, amazing force of nature.
Listening to the tap-dancing of hail on the skylights and the distant rumblings of thunder in the distance. For a few moments, I am completely in the here and now as this downpour commands my complete attention and awe.
Do I really need a sudden downpour, or any other event, to break my busy-ness and bring my attention into the moment?
I am reminded to take moments throughout my days in peaceful observance of Now. Not doing, just BEing in the moment.
Then I can be still.
