One of the first tenets of Zen Buddhism is awareness: noticing. But Noticing is hard work. I am having a problem with noticing in simple areas of my life. Pills for example. If I take the same pill three times a day every day, one time blends into the next. I can't remember if I've taken one at a given meal. I've tried logging them, but I can't remember if I took them to log them. I shake the bottle to bring my attention to what I'm doing. I turn the bottle upside down. I'm afraid I'm getting senile and will have to get one of those pill things with 5 times a day to take pills that my Mom had. I should have taken hers when she died.
Right now, I am noticing that even though it's hot and muggy outside, my bare feet are cold in here.
