Now, what was I doing? Oh yes, writing. I’m so scattered
these days, doing a little of this, a little of that. What’s happened to my organizational skills?
“You’re not scattered, you’re finally beginning to live in the present moment,” Madonna’s reading my thoughts again. “As you’re preparing a cup of tea, a dirty kitchen catches your attention. Rather than think ‘I should clean the kitchen’, then put it on your to-do list, you simply do it. You’re no longer living in a world of ‘shoulds’. You choose in the moment: to either clean the kitchen, or let it go. There are no ‘shoulds’. Did you get your cup of tea?”
“Are you heading back to what you were doing?”
“With a clear mind, no dirty kitchen looming over your present activity. Sometimes the appropriate choice is to ignore the kitchen, but then put it aside without any ‘should’ attached to it. Thus, you’re living in the present moment, free of mind clutter. You’re not scattered. Let that old curriculum go,” she says with a wink.
