If you knew that you only had one day left to live, what would you do?
You would probably spend it with the ones you love the most. You would take each micro moment and turn it into a beautiful and complete moment. You may go and watch the sunrise.
Your attention would be attuned to the other person. Every thing they say, every movement, becomes amplified and wonderful. You would feel everything so intensely. You would take time to really, really listen, each word coming from your loved one like a sweetly chiming bell. You wouldn't waste any time on grievances. You just want to be in their company. Enjoy them. Relish them.
There would be no time for disagreements, innuendos or emails. This is living in the moment.
You would in your heart, truly be dancing in the garden. Treasuring each moment.
Why can't we be more like this every day? If we have many more days to celebrate with our loved ones, why aren't they more like this?
Because we get so distracted, and forget how to live.
