In an age of distraction, giving our full attention to someone or something is a radical act. Attention is a form of love.
"Perhaps the most important thing we can give each other is our full attention," Rachel Naomi Remen wisely said. Giving our full attention means being attune to the nuance of someone's body language as we listen to them speak, or observing, with awe, the detailed gorgeousness of a moth's wings. When we are distracted by our phones, computers, to-do lists, or even thoughts of the past or future, our sensory awareness is dulled and deadened. But when we give undivided attention to the experience of the present moment, we stimulate our senses and our gratitude, and practice a kind of mindfulness that is the secret to becoming truly awake to our lives. What a gift!
