Mindfulness is the focus of my life and this site this year. How can we learn to cultivate an awareness that what matters is the moment at hand, whether we're paying bills or walking our dog or waiting in the line at the grocery store? How do we learn to live as if all of life is spiritual, that nothing we do or see or know or hear or experience is outside of the realm of God's touch? Jean-Pierre De Caussade, an 18th century saint challenged us to embrace the holiness--not just of the moment, but in the moment, something he referred to as a sacrament:
Precious moment, how small in the eyes of my head and how great in those of my heart, the means whereby I receive small things from the Father who reigns in heaven! Everything that falls from there is very excellent, everything bears the mark of its maker.For me, this is a journey fraught with stops and starts, but in the end I'm learning that like every other spiritual discipline, it requires persistent grace, daily intentionality, and patience with myself.
