Attention


'Paying attention to the body
focuses the mind
and brings emotions to calmness.
It is amazing
how much aliveness comes from
simply paying attention -
to ourselves,
to our bodies,
as we are.
Giving thanks for life and living
and the great gift of a superbly-crafted vehicle.
Not wishing anything to be other than it is.
No 'should', 'must', 'can't'.
Simply accepting ourselves -
as we are -
fully, completely, with love and tenderness.
Listening to who we are.
Being who we are.
Just being...
and being aware of just being.'

Excerpt from 'Eve-olution ~ Enriching Feminine Consciousness and Body Awareness' by Marguerite van der Merwe
