I have been practising Mindfulness for more than one year. In this one year, I have learned how being mindful can be extremely helpful to control your anxiety.
I am thankful to Mindfulness because practising Mindfulness has always been a wonderful experience for me. While researching for this series, when I came across the concept of Ichigo Ichie, I was very happy to read what it means.
Ichigo Ichie is a new kind of Mindfulness that comes from an age-old concept and encompasses the idea of ‘being attentive to every moment.’
When I embrace Ichigo Ichie as an art of life, I learn to use all my senses to build a deeper connection to myself, by being present in the moment. And within that journey, I discover the bliss that is the key to eternity.
Ichigo Ichie paves the path towards finding harmony with my loved ones, my thoughts, and my life.
Celebrating every moment as a special moment is itself a blissful thought. When you will delve deeper, Ichigo Ichie will unfold to you the truth that is hidden in this present moment.
Every moment comes in your life only once; therefore, you should enjoy every moment as once in a lifetime, else it will slip away from your grip and will be lost forever.
When I read this, I paused for one moment. I read it twice, and while reading, it felt very peaceful. When I was reading this, my dad was reading the newspaper, my mom was cooking in the kitchen, my sister was having her evening snacks, and I was typing this post. But when I read this line: every moment comes only once in a lifetime, I found a serene bliss in my mind.
It was the approaching summer here, the weather was pleasant though, but I felt the air very calm, and my heart was filled with peace and happiness altogether.
This moment, this very moment, whatever be in this moment, how wrong it seems, how tough it seems, how sad it seems, but this is yours. This moment is all that you have now, all you have is here, and now.
And here lies the real essence of this art of life that I found during my research. If you dive deeper, Ichigo Ichie will unlock the door towards your inner happiness and it will echo the whisper to your ears, that all you have is this present moment.
This moment will only come once in a lifetime, hold it in your grip so that it never be lost in the alley of eternity.
It is yours, this moment is yours. Live it to the fullest.
Does it echo to you too?
