Pretty moments

When you order something on the internet, you sometimes receive a package with a text or saying on it. For example, I recently received this box that says on the inside that life is about beautiful moments and that you should enjoy them.

We generally do everything we can to create as many beautiful moments as possible in our lives.

We generally do everything we can to create as many beautiful moments as possible in our lives. We celebrate life, so to speak. When this works - according to our own ideas and standards - we feel happy, for a moment. The moment is 'lucky', we capture it in a photo, and think we are 'making' life. But soon the beautiful moment is over and an ugly, stupid or boring moment follows not long after. Our life is a series of beautiful and not-so-beautiful moments and we are therefore happy or not-so-happy.

We think this is normal, but if you look a little closer, you will see that this yo-yoing can only lead to trouble. The beautiful moment itself does not last long, the rush is only there for a short time, the moment passes and because the beautiful moment is there at all, there is also a not-beautiful moment. At the core there is only unrest.

This moment is the most beautiful moment you can ever experience. Because it is empty of your ideas about what beautiful moments are.

What Mindful Medicine is trying to teach you is that there is an alternative. A 'moment' that never passes, that is never not beautiful and that you don't have to do anything to 'experience' it. That moment is this moment. This exact moment, right now. When you give up all your ideas about beautiful moments in your life, this moment fills with everything there is, and with the most beautiful thing you can ever experience. It fills with You. All you have to do is provide your homemade substitute for this moment. This moment is always there, never passes and is what you really are. By practicing this meditation with Mindful Medicine you will notice it automatically. And you won't regret it.
