Slow down using the five senses – Sight

Most of the time we are so busy running here and there – or at least we think we are – that we loose the contact with our Self. Indulging in the sensual perception of what we are too absentminded to notice may help us slow down and make us aware of our presence HERE and NOW. Let’s spare some quality time to see: – the magnificence of an art piece: allow yourself to get carried away in ecstasy – the look in the eyes of our loved ones: eye-to-eye contact creates a deep bond which goes beyond any word – the beauty around us: observe something, its colour, its frame, its shape, its flaws, its light, and just take it all in – our own beauty: look at yourself in the mirror, be kind, not reprimanding, don’t judge, just love what you see

    i really try to be more observant of the things around me. even sitting at my desk, i like to close my eyes…take a deep breath…and take in all that&#39;s around. what can i see? what can i hear? what can i smell? it can be really therapeutic. great post Coco!<br />
