All books and notes have lovely doodles drawn along the border, these are times I realized that I was physically present, but my conscious mind, or rather awareness had taken the flight. When this realization hit me, I also realized so many times we mechanically do things without actually being there.
Yet whenever, I have been fully present to the work I find the entire experience is filled with a different energy and seem to have a new life. Here’s what I learnt over the past 21 days of creating an intention of being 100% present at the task at hand.
During our hypnotherapy training Dr.Yuvraj Kapadia, actually made us realize the being aware, being present concept. It starts with the intention to bring consciousness into everything we do, including those activities that we earn our livelihood from. It could be something so simple as sweeping and swabbing the house in the morning, or kneading the dough for roti’s doing it consciously definitely improves the quality of the work performed, and the experience is more fulfilling.
There is this concept during a Bharatnatyam performance, I am so and so telling the story of so and so, if we could bring this factor to our workplace particularly when we are handling the project for others, that is I am Parwati and I render this skill of mine to this project I would be more committed instead of being resentful at being pushed around. It also allows me to perform the task in all integrity because I know what I am committing myself to. This awareness, has reduced the level of frustration me.
Just incase you would like to experiment with this, then I would recommend setting an intention in morning to stay present as the day unfolds, to create an intention to enjoy every moment during the day. most importantly before going to bed, bring your awareness back to you, thank the universe for the wonderful experience and just notice what happens in your space.
I mean this is just an experiment you never know what would pop up for you.
