Thought Adjuster: “In the Tai Chi move called “Move Hands Like Clouds,” you let your hands slowly float from the right to the left side of your body, attentively following them with your gaze. It is good imagery for the continuum of time and how you can remain present-minded in such an unbroken flow.
“How is it possible to keep your focus on the opportunities at hand without being sidetracked by the ghosts of the past or the mirages of the non-eventuated future? How is it possible to ‘realistically’ plan for the future? By cultivating mindfulness—a great spiritual practice that benefits you holistically.
“On the material plane, you maintain a grounded stance; you remain energetically connected to the earth, which allows you to be more authentically in your body, in the present moment, and receive nourishing energy. It promotes your productivity, enabling you to put your talents and gifts to good use and ‘actualize’ your visions and goals.
“On the emotional plane, you are unshakeable and remain in control of your emotions, having practiced and mastered how to stay grounded in Peace. Amid a crisis, you initiate the called-for action plan without panicking, exhibiting stress or losing your cool—thus inspiring others in to regain their emotional footing.
“On the spiritual plane, you are mindfully yielding the fruits of the spirit by collecting the precious pollen of wisdom from the past to pollinate your present, which will organically take you to the spiritual promised land where honey flows freely.
“All these planes require that you entertain an unwavering vision as to the best operating platform for your existence—an attitude that will serve you best throughout your eternal journey. Work your way from the ground up!”
