Our punter had been doing this job for 12 years. He said that he never got tired of the river, despite going up and down the same stretch everyday, because the river is always changing. Each day there was a new river waiting for him to discover.
Life offers us a new river everyday. We have a chance to start again, change something or just look at life in a new way. Our daily routine can make things seem repetitive and dull at times but actually no day is the same, we just ‘think’ we’ve seen it all before.
Mindfulness can help us to move from our thinking, judging mind to a state of conscious awareness where we can perceive things directly in their true, ever changing form.
