Ever do things that you wonder if you did them or not? You don’t remember doing things because you set those things on automatic. You “forget” quite well so as to not remember them plus it puts you a frame of mind that you are really not “present”. And you aren’t, are you?
How many things in our environment do we set up to be on automatic instead of engaging those things in present time? Can machines do the work of active engagement or involvement? Perhaps some things are okay like setting the coffee pot to perk at 6AM to have your coffee ready when you get up. Or maybe it’s notokay. I am just tossing this idea out there. How about the more we do for ourselves, the more self-determined we are if done in present time? Knowing what you are doing when you are doing it is being present.
We can still “do” for ourselves, but if it isn’t actively engaged, then we are set on automatic. Any thoughts from YOU?
