When in doubt, Buddhism encourages us to question our perspective on our current situation. Can we shift it or enlarge it?are there any positive angles? We should practise bringing our attention to our breath through our day as a way to focus on the present moment.
That’s what I should be doing. But I am still far too restless to stay really still for more than 5mn. So I made great use of the other 15mn I had plan to devote to meditation… and got us tickets to Japan! After all, even Buddha said that surrendering to our little imperfections is part of the journey.
In our family, we don’t celebrate B’days and Xmas with big presents. We offer “voucher for an exciting family trip“instead. So Japan will be where we’ll all redeem our coupons this year. Because when Buddha speaks about change of perspective, I do take it literally. I Can’t wait to experience the energy of the city and the nature again, and visit this old classical music café where speaking is forbidden, unless you really whisper.. Stay tuned!
