In our modern society everything seems geared to material development, even our systems of education. As a result we no longer pay sufficient attention to our inner values, which leads to mental unrest. In order to address this imbalance we need to pay more attention to our minds.

OCD Brain
Today was lovely. I am really enjoying walking the greenway at dawn, with a grand total of 5.5 miles walked so far, three of which are done before 7. This afternoon I went to a meeting, talked with my sponsor, went to Physical Therapy, where much good stuff...

Zen Moment
This morning while I was out on my walk, I noticed that someone had made a couple Zen rock towers in the river. They are perfectly lovely.

"Finishing is not the Point"
 
Think about how often you engage in an activity with the goal of finishing. Washing dishes. Cleaning the bathroom. Mowing the Lawn. Eating breakfast. Getting a degree. We often engage in our life’s activities with the focus on finishing and while we’re working on the task our attention is on what we’re planning do to when we’re done. In essence, our mind is one step ahead of our life.
 
The problem, as you can see, is that with our mind always a step ahead, we don't fully participate in our life at this very moment. We assume the point is to finish (and maybe finish first, or finish quickly) so we miss the actual experience of the activity itself. Consider music. If you are playing a wonderful piece of music, that goal is not to get to the end.  Even if you’re listening, the goal is not to get to the end. The goal is to play, to sing, to enjoy the music.
 
Of course we know this, but how often we forget as we get overwhelmed with life and rush from one task to another, trying to check off all the items on our to-do list. So next time you’re racing around trying get as much done as possible, consider this: 
Finishing is not the point.

This is great pizza, the best you will find in the valley. Small pie is for one person, or get what you like by the slice which is actually two huge pieces. The large pie is enough for four adults and with a 2 liter drink is less than $20

I have been using the fine folks and services at Wayne's for over 20 years. They are wonderful and worth every penny. I can honestly say that they have been wonderful and have made my cars run more efficiently, better, and extended their lifespans. Highly recommended.
