“Many people are alive but don't touch the miracle of being alive.”
— Thich Nhat Hanh, The Miracle of Mindfulness
In between work, family, and social media, we take few precious moments to reflect upon our lives. Perhaps, you purposely avoid looking at your life because, if you’re totally honest, it can be brutal.
Notice the tsunami of judgmental thoughts that swamp your mind causing stress and anxiety.
Research scientist, Kathryn Tristan, says in her book, Why Worry, at some time in our lives, half of us in the U.S. will suffer from anxiety, depression, or addiction—the very opposite of an authentic life.
But, then something miraculous happens.
On your way home from work or a rushed meal out, dusk’s rising luminous moon captivates you, and you experience a moment of ecstasy and utter peace.
You were just alive—and brilliantly so!
FROM MUNDANE TO MIRACULOUS
What was the shift?
For a moment, you were in perfect balance, consciously mindful of the miracle of life which includes the miracle called YOU!
In simpler terms, even Austin Powers knew his authenticity = his potency = his mojo.
Authenticity emerges when you live not just from mind and body, but from the heart which is your natural state.
"If quality of life is important to you, mindful living trades confusion for
life’s magical moments—every single day." TWEET THIS
Here are seven simple ways to enjoy the miracle of your authentic life daily:
1. Slow Life Down Each Day
Immersing yourself in nature, going for a walk, yoga, meditation, even hand-washing dishes are forms of conscious mindfulness. Add as much heart to everything you do.
Life itself is immensely satisfying when we let go of mental expectations and enter the “Zen” or the flow.
2. Mind the Gap for Miracles
"When you allow your thoughts to breathe by paying attention to the gap
in between, you move out of reactive-ness to being response-able." TWEET THIS
Silence without judgment is extremely powerful and contains miracles. It shifts, even breaks, habitual destructive patterns.
3. Give Up Planning for 90 Days
Let go of planning initially, integrating intuition and creativity to allow spontaneity to appear naturally.
Albert Einstein said, “The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant.”
Rather than projecting different possible scenarios, be a blank slate by asking, “What’s next?”
4. Say, “I don’t know,” Often
And then sit in the space of I don’t know, even if it’s uncomfortable. All inspiration arises from the void of emptiness.
Learn to play within emptiness’ unlimited possibility.
5. Open Yourself to Higher Consciousness
In Practicing the Power of Now, spiritual teacher and author, Eckhart Tolle offers: “So when you listen to a thought, you are aware not only of the thought but also of yourself as the witness of the thought. A new dimension of consciousness has come in.”
Have you tried being a witness to your own thoughts? It’s life transforming. Ask yourself if a worrisome thought is the highest truth or self-doubt.
6. Be Bigger than Your Body
Any Zen Master or Yogi, will tell you your identity is not wrapped up in your thoughts.
As you climb Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs toward self-actualization, you will come to know you are much more than your body.
Only in the complete synthesis of mind, body, and spirit can you finally begin to thrive!
7. Know You are Enough
Mind, body, spirit realization is fulfillment in and of itself!
There is no greater authenticity than to know who you really are as part of the infinite.
