Empty Your Mind

If you have a mobile phone, turn it off.

Unplug the wall phone.

Turn off the computer and the television and the stereo.

Go in the back yard or to a window and stare at the sky for a while, say 10 minutes or more.

Don't plan anything.

Don't sort anything out.

Look at clouds or birds or stars or the shapes of the tops of distant buildings.

Don't think about anything you'll necessarily remember 10 seconds from now.

Be.

One thought on “Empty Your Mind”

  1. This is a hard one. Which is probably why it’s so necessary. I get started in the morning and go go go go all day long, pulled by electronic things. If I’m away from them, I start to go into this weird place of not knowing what’s next – which is probably exactly where I need to be for a while. Thanks for the reminder.
