Podcast Host Christopher J. Miller shares the metaphor of being in the hallway. Being in the hallway symbolizes the times in our life when we may be overwhelmed, exhausted, or simply not sure what we want to do next.
Chris reminds the listener to give themselves permission to stop and be in the hallway because sometimes inspired action takes time. Accept the hallway, ground yourself and let yourself be.
Chris shares an exercise from Lama Surya Das’s book, “Letting Go of the Person You Used to Be: Lessons on Change, Loss and Spiritual Transformation.” In this book, Das explains how to choose a personal mindfulness bell. Learn to practice being mindful by selecting a sound, thing, or word you often hear and using that experience to trigger a mindful moment. For example: the siren from an ambulance or fire truck is the mindfulness bell that Chris has selected.
One form of mindfulness is getting quiet, going within, and stopping our thoughts. Sending out love is another form, according to Chris.
Exercises: This week, let yourself be in the hallway and pick a personal mindfulness bell.
