Our time on earth is limited, but to merely exist is to become a number. Our primary aim in life is to live – but how? That is the ever looming question… There is no formula to it, but there are things we can do to maximise our presence. That is, to be present, in the moment. Alive.
We’ve put together this short, 2 minute video to awaken, heighten and engage the senses and remind you of our basic abilities as human beings that we often over look.
1. Self Awareness (Physical, Emotional, Mental)
2. Use the Senses – Sight, Smell, Hearing, Taste & Touch
3. Awareness of Others
4. Awareness of Surroundings
5. Be present. Be Alive.
‘…the future is still not here, and cannot become a part of experienced reality until it is present… To pursue it is to pursue a constantly retreating phantom, and the faster you chase it, the faster it runs ahead.
This is why all the affairs of civilization are rushed, why hardly anyone enjoys what he has, and is forever seeking more and more.’ – Alan Watts

These are the pre-requisites. And this is your daily dose of diplomacy.
