Sometimes, when we are attending the same “talk” or “seminar”, even though the content is the same, surprisingly, our understanding on the talk is so much difference. Have you ever wonder why this happened in our life?
The main reason is we only capture whatever we are keen to listen and whatever we are interested. Besides, we are using our “own understanding and past experience” to elaborate the content. A lot of misunderstanding and conflict happen due to this reason.
Sometimes, when people talk to us, we are aware they are talking to us but we don’t know the content as we are not mindful and our thoughts are like wild monkeys, keep traveling from past and future. Unfortunately, never at present moment.
This scenario applies the same to what we are seeing. Let’s take a walk in garden, you might see the different things as compared to your friends. It’s all depend what is your interest and are you mindful enough to discover little beings or little things around you?
Discover the beauty around you, you see and hear more when you are mindful!
Have a mindful day!
