Total Beauty Surrounds You by Bryant McGill
Achieving mindfulness during your daily activities will reveal great rewards, even in the most mundane of tasks. Mindfulness is that space where you are in touch with life-experience and you are brightly aware. Do not allow precious moments to pass-by full of unnoticed experiences. When you are unaware and lack mindfulness, you feel empty, because life's experiences are passing you by, leaving you hungry. Experiences are meant to fill you. When people do not partake of natural, common and essential experience through mindfulness, they often seek to fill their hungers artificially by chasing empty and destructive experiences. The world is full of alluring, flashy and thrilling experiences, which are illusionary traps--they are paths to nowhere.
The path to transcendence is unrecognized by many because it appears ordinary. As sensory experience junkies, we have been blinded to the majesty in the common; like never seeing the stars above the city lights. But out on the quiet country roads, like the untrodden corridors of your meditative self, there is clarity to see the brilliant stars of your own luminous perfection. Like the unseen stars, your joy and perfection has been there all along--awaiting your recognition.
