Mindful Doodles #69:
Every action has a reaction. Every act has a consequence.
Mindful Doodles is a series of comic/ cartoon drawn on assimilating stimuli that comes into my mind. My surrounding and environment are dynamic. As events happen, the stimuli enters my brain and I pay attention to them. I am not mentally disturbed as I pay due respect to each stimulus. I ponder upon how I would deal with the stimulus, to manage the situation. I try to discover what lesson the Universe bestows on me in this encounter. I write my discovery as my Mindful Thought of the Day.
Why be mindful? By paying time and attention to a disturbing stimulus, you deal with it. It ceases to be new and disruptive to you. You have released anxiety. You have greatly reduced your mental stress.
Mindful Thought of the Day:
Be mindful of your immediate surroundings. Even a small act matters as it gives a reaction. When you are aware of the pairs of action-reaction, you can anticipate in advance the consequence, and prepare for it. An example can be as simple as shaking the table when you use an eraser. The other person sharing the table with you, may be affected. If you can anticipate that a simple act of using an eraser can cause table vibrations, then you might leave the table and use your eraser somewhere else.
