Mental Excursion – Where did you go few minutes before?


Alan Cohen says “Imagine two lawyers in a courtroom inside your head.

One is arguing for your possibilities and you achieving your goals. The other is arguing for your limits and why you don’t deserve what you want. Who will win? The lawyer whom you pay the most. The way you pay these lawyers, however, is not with money; it is with your attention”.

Where your attention goes, your mind & energy flows there.

Your mind plays a major role in holding your current attention.

But your mind is always on an excursion mode.

Mind keeps travelling between your past, future or to the fantasy world. Hence, your attention keeps wandering.

Let’s test it now…Ask yourself what were you thinking few mins before – I am for sure your mind was thinking about any one issue/situation in any one of the three realms(past, future or fantasy).

Training your mind to be in the present moment is the key for perennial source of happiness & health.

It’s like riding your bicycle. By continuous microscopic adjustment of the cycle bar to the left or right, we travel straight in a cycle. Your mind will keep jumping, but it is your responsibility to tie to the present moment awareness.

The simple way to bring to the present moment is to bring your awareness to the tip of your nose, feel the air going in and coming out.

Can you take one nice deep mindful breath now?
