The Gift of Attention

I want to write about what it was like being on retreat, about the beauty of the land, the bell in the dark of the morning, the palpable presence of stillness in a room of 100 people, the happiness and the boredom, the discomfort, the striving, the confusion, and the peace. But it’s all just words.

What I really want is for you to experience this for yourself.

But I know that’s not possible for everyone.

If you can’t find a way to get away on retreat, then maybe you can find a quiet place, even for just a few minutes a day, where you can sit relaxed and undisturbed, and give the gift of attention to yourself.

Maybe you could even listen to one of the morning instructions we heard at the retreat, like this one here, given by Phillip Moffitt.
