A young boy fishing at the Kaunakakai wharf at dusk. It doesn't matter if he catches anything (although I'm sure he hopes he does). It's the act of doing something that he loves and not letting anything else distract him. The soft evening wind blowing against his face. The tide beginning its cycle of rushing back out to sea. Grabbing the very last rays of light long after the sun has dipped over the horizon.
Yes, that's it. That's how you learn how to 'just be'.
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'.
