Have you ever heard the phrase, “where your attention goes, energy flows”? It’s true. Your attention is a powerful currency, after all you pay attention. In fact, your attention is your superpower. You have the ability to take advantage of this superpower by training yourself to pay attention on purpose. And when you do, you learn to pay attention to what truly matters to you, and this can transform your life.
“I refer to attention as the “currency of love” because what you attend to, you enliven, nourish, and encourage to thrive. Consider this: when you offer your unconditioned, gentle attention to someone or something, you are sending a very powerful message: “I see you. I hear you. I love you.” Every living being, from people and animals to plants, and even molecules of water, respond to attention. This not only creates a deeper connection between you and every thing else, your deliberate attention can also enliven your relationship to yourself, your body, your passions, your projects, and ultimately, your entire life.”
Sarah says, “Meditation is an important ingredient for living a peaceful, powerful, purposeful life. It strengthens your attention muscle and helps you deal with distractions so you can take back control of your attention. Meditation is something everyone can do. You don’t need a special form of concentration or a particular belief system. In fact, it is your birthright to meditate.”
Explore your power of attention at this wonderful spiritual retreat center in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
