MANIFESTO FOR MINDFULNESS

Be purposeful in whatever you do.

Show up no matter what.

Don’t wait for inspiration to arrive. The muse lies in waiting for us to show up. Set aside a specific day or time of day to create. Devotion will be your discipline.

Ritualize your routine – make it meaningful.

When we show up to do the work, we can make it a sacred ceremony. Light a candle, sing an incantation, say a prayer. Do anything that signals to yourself that you are here to do your holy work.

Bow in thanks – a celebration ceremony. This is an offering of gratitude – for having showed up, for the gifts that have been offered, for the basic goodness of it all.
 It’s a celebration of the simple way we can honor our life’s work.
