Lately I’ve been posting various quotes, trivia, and humorous sayings via my Twitter account. I feel that there’s so much that can be communicated by these technologies, maybe offering some words that make you stop for a moment, make you think, laugh, or even pause can infuse your day with a bit more meaning.
I’ve had criticism for quoting others, instead of coming up with my own phrases. But really, reinvent the wheel? So much incredible wisdom that has been recorded over time, is there to be shared, taken in, re-examined and integrated into one’s existence.
My whole M.O. is encouraging people to stop and ‘honor the pause’. Sure, Reiki is a method to do that, but if you are reading this from an office where you are sitting in front of a computer, how do you sneak that quiet moment of bliss in? Try convincing your boss that you were meditating and not falling asleep at the job.
So, reading something online that makes you pause and wonder may be a way to at least bring a state of contemplation into one’s busy day.
I’ve been experimenting with Pinterest as a visual ancedote too, it’s another way of presenting something makes you go, ‘ah, now that feels good’.
These are steps toward experiencing something refreshing and new, the best is the real deal which is stepping away from technology and being outside in the sun and fresh air. No app for that. It just is.
But, to help you through your work day, I offer these devices. May you enjoy a moment of pause!
