If thou wilt be observant and vigilant,
thou wilt see at every moment the response to thy action.
if thou wouldst have a pure heart,
for something is born to thee in consequence of every action.
Mindfulness and vigorous people
Active people generally can’t stand slowing down and savoring the moment. Just as some people are frightened by the quick and obvious, they like everything to be quick and obvious.
The fun of growing older is that I comfortably experiment with world views that are not my own. I can look at the quick and slow with equal interest. I look at the massively consequential and the trivial with equal curiosity.
I am sure people who start off savoring well also learn the joys of becoming more exuberant.
