“…we often still find ourselves disengaged from our own clarity, moving along without thinking…”
-From “Light Comes Through” by Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche

Autopilot is not good.

Many athletes are on autopilot.

Many students are on autopilot.

What we need to do is live moment to moment. We need to stay in the present.

When we play a point in tennis, we should treat it as if it’s the only point we are going to play that day.

When we are working on a project at work, we should treat it as the only thing we are going to do that day.

School, relationships and our nutrition are the same way.

Take a few deep breaths (in through the nose for four seconds and out through the nose for four seconds, from the stomach)

Observe your surroundings.

What are you wearing?

What sounds do you hear?

Notice your posture.

What position are your hands in?

Whatever you do, put all of your attention and awareness towards it. Be fully present.

Try this in everything you do today. See how you feel…

Leave me your comments.
