I’m pretty keen on sunsets, and I’ve stood and watched a LOT of them, but the other night, as the sun set, I found myself saying “never seen that before” – again!
Look at this phenomenon! It’s like there is a small chain of suns setting!
Or two of them, at least!
Well, as Ellen Langer says, the way to lead a mindful life is to look out for novelty.
Or, as I learned from homeopathic practice – allow yourself to be struck by what’s “strange, rare and peculiar”. The thing is, there’s something “strange, rare and peculiar” every single day, because the nature of the universe is constant change and creativity. There’ll always be something today which is different from yesterday….
Do you think you could ever be done with looking at sunsets? Is there a time when you stop noticing them?
