[Hold Your Step]

This is one long escalator. You are standing in the middle of it. The people in front of you can’t wait to walk down and step out of the escalator already. You still stand your feet in a stationary posture, holding the handrail. 3 minutes pass. In those 180 seconds, you count every tick-tock of it. You can hold the flow in your hands rather than rushing and forcing yourself away.

With the extra seconds of slow pace, you can better and deepen your focus. Everything surrounding you shows its more profound look. Like a flower, it hides its beauty in the bud. It takes time to reveal its inner side. By exchanging time, that’s how you gain a chance to pay real attention.

Trading the extra seconds of time, you receive a new perspective for your life and others’ lives. A distinct vision does not only allow you to have a diverse mindset but also a cushion before making regretful decisions. Finding out how it feels to someone after putting yourself in their shoes helps valuing their efforts and easing your temper.

Appreciating the extra seconds of time, you earn an opportunity to empty your anxious mind and feel relaxed. As you calm down, you may realize the reality of doing less results in needing less. Materials do not matter. What’s important is your grateful and contented heart.

【留意腳步】

你站在長電梯,站在你前面的人已急不及待走下去。你仍然緊握著扶手,腳仍定立在那。三分鐘過去了。在這180秒,你數著指針每打一下滴答滴答,彷彿可以觸摸得到時間的流動,而非匆忙地趕著。

放慢步調,更能加深和好好專注事情。周圍環境展現其深層內涵,宛如花朵一般,藏身花苞內的美態,直至時間推移,才綻放內在一面。以時間交換,才真正觀察到事物之本質。

減下速度,助你找到對己對彼的新角度。不同的觀點不但帶來豐富多樣的思維,而且提供了緩衝期,免得作出遺憾決定。設身處地替他人著想,重新審視對方,亦舒緩了自己的情緒。

停下腳步,能驅走煩惱,使你放鬆。當你平靜下來,當你做少點,或會發現其實需求並非那麼大。物質如浮雲,重要的是懂得感恩與知足的心。

搜搜Mindah-Lee Kumar對走路靜心的講解。開始注意你的步伐以及每分每秒。
