Daily practice

My daily practice and training is to be more focused, more present, more mindful. When I wash dishes, I wash dishes only. When I read, I read only. When I do household chores, I do household chores only. It seems like the most boring practice in the world to many people but to me it is a most exciting one. I don’t know of a better way to live. I’m tired of being distracted, mindless, unfocused. When I’m focused, I’m happier and more productive and simply more “there”. The ordinary aspects of my life seem less ordinary. The quality of my immediate experience is elevated somehow into something, if not more interesting, then at least much more enjoyable.
