“Throughout the day, be mindful of your thoughts, words and actions. Are you staying in your integrity? Are you moving towards your stated intentions or goals? Are you feeling balanced, relaxed and in peace? Are you experiencing joy? Are there obstacles that need to be addressed? Are you staying in the now moment rather than worrying about the past or future?
Being balanced is a skill, similar to riding a bicycle. At first, it is tedious as you pay attention to every detail. However, as you practice balancing your body, it eventually becomes second nature as your subconscious mind takes over. You are then free to be more creative, such as riding with no hands or paying more attention to what is happening around you. Notice the wonders of nature as you pedal along.
However, there are dangers to watch for: cars, loose gravel, mud puddles, etc. With practice, you learn to avoid these pitfalls gracefully. If you lose your balance and fall, simply get up and start over. If you get tired, rest. Take a nice easy pace for longevity. Don’t forget to drink plenty of water! Take a lunch, rest under a tree and appreciate all the beauty this world has to offer!”
