One of my morning meditations recently included the mantra that makes for the title of this post:
Let us be awake to life.
I find it all too easy to drift through life.
Days blur into weeks, which blur into months, which blur into years.
And before long, I’m repeating the tired refrain: Doesn’t time fly?
I lose sight of the truth that each day is a gift – an opportunity.
Caught up in the busyness of the day-to-day, I forget to open my eyes. I end up sleep-walking through life.
Hence me finding the mediative mantra a medicine for my soul.
I want to be awake to life! But it’s a choice I have to make afresh at the start of each day.
