Slow Down and Just Be (the art of)





I think there must be a universal attraction to the various versions of peaceful Buddhas. So many of us are drawn to images and 3D representations of this figure. We all wish we could have that kind of inner peace. Meditation is undermined by the busy, non-stop monkey mind. How does one achieve the so needed empty vessel to experience inner peace? I have no secret trick to offer-except to say that it is a work in progress, it is a daily practice.

The art of to just be is something that requires a mindfulness and a willingness to commit to a daily practice. It doesn't mean that you beat yourself up every time you don't make it a daily practice. It's just something that you strive for. And, over time, you may find yourself getting a bit better at it.

All you have to do is Just Be.
