Awareness of agitation
an excerpt from Live Beautifully: A Book to Sit With, by Doris Wedige
Reflections on a peaceful slumber...
A day spent living with a frantic mind leads to a night spent in a body that is tense with aches and pains and a brain that just won’t stop. Our inability to turn off the senseless activities of the mind leads to fatigue by day and sleeplessness by night.
Choose to Live Beautifully. Keep returning to stillness by day. Not a stillness in the sense of inactivity, but a Peaceful Stillness within. Expand your awareness of the Stillness by turning your awareness to your Breath for a few moments over and over throughout the day.
I intend to be aware of the Breath.
