We often consider ourselves successful when we lead a busy eventful life. Sometimes if our life is filled with to many events that run to close together, our life can seem like one big event. Most of the time this carries with it some anxiety.
This is due to our minds racing to the next task before we have finished the current task. In essence, we are no longer present in this state. We are so busy attempting to get to the next step before have finished the current that we almost forget where we are.
When stepping back, one may wonder why this is considered success. Most highly successful people will state that being present is an essential aspect of their lives. Then why do we sometimes find ourselves rush and rushing to make things happen. The answer is in our lack of being present. I believe sometimes we believe that if we don’t think about the next step, it wont ever happen. This is obviously not true. In fact, if we were present the possibility of the next step being more fluid is 100%.
With today’s AmbioFile I have constructed a track that is extremely busy and full of color. My hopes are that this kaleidoscope of spiraling notes gives you a sense of beauty and wonder. Furthermore, I hope you can see how busy doesn’t mean you aren’t in the present- and to recognize this.
As you can tell, busy can be beautiful. However, the beautiful shines through when the busy is organized. The randomly placed notes in the above video seem out of place. This would equate for the times in our lives that we consider to be busy and out of order. During these times we feel as though we are not in control of what is happening. That are lives (just like the notes) are spiraling out of control. This, just as in the composition[above] is the ideal time to stop and cease this momentum and find yourself in the present moment.
