The Spiritual Practice of Being Attentive

If you want to develop a conscious way of living, this little mantra may become a helpful tool for you, as it has been for me.  It emerged when I was still working and dealing with the frantic pace of the job.  When I feel caught up in activity or verbal clutter I say the mantra and enact it.  By making this a consistent practice we can stop the intense break-neck speed of modern life.   A slower pace carves out a spare room in our souls where we wait for the Spirit to enter and work in and through us.  Practice and time develop the courage to open our minds and hearts to positive and new possibilities.
