Today’s talk is a – windy – talk about Pause. As you listen to the video blog post, practice pausing against that wind and water. Pause against the crackle of life moving about me as I teach.
What is Pause?
Pause is releasing an action or thought in order to create space to become aware.
For some people, the moving of life around them and any rough edges would distract them from learning. We often get focused on the distractions or our thoughts which then prevents us from seeing the true lesson. We can pause through distractions which then allows us to focus on what helps grow most and more graceful paths ahead.
If you can’t pause against simple wind or water of this video, then how will you pause against the more challenging chaotic moments of your day to day hustle of life?
The trick is pausing by not listening to the wind. Just becuase the world doesnt stop around you doesn’t mean you have to interact with that distraction. You relax against the sound of the wind and allow it to go through you. Then within pausing, you can focus on my voice or another aspect of the moment that catches your attention. Do you see the trick now: you can selectively pause. Pause isn’t an all or nothing process; you can partially pause part of your senses or actions to create space for other senses and actions.
As you listen if you cannot release the wind, if the rustling is too much: then breathe in, pause and shift your focus back to the words rather the wind. This video is purposely set up to help teach you how to pause thru the noise of life. You will laugh and enjoy it once you get the knack of it down!
