Being Mindful, Counselling

I Sat On A Bus


I sat on a bus recently one evening at around 5pm.

I looked around and what did I see?

95% of people staring at their phones!

What about the sunset that is happening outside and how beautiful the transition from day to dusk is ?

What about that amazing buildings, the street scenes and the birds flying in their hoards?

Did I notice that new Italian restaurant that was not there a week ago?

How about that elderly lady that is doing her best to stand up on the bouncing bus as there are no spare seats?

What about….. Hang on my phone buzzed!

Must be a text… Let me just check…

And there it is – I am lost into my screen again just like everyone else on the bus (hopefully not the bus driver!)

I wonder after – just what did I miss on that journey home?

Oh it’s dark suddenly – where did the sun go?

Have you ever looked at the posture of people on the bus looking at their phone?
It’s hunched right.

I wonder what the journey home could be like if we just look out of the window instead?

We spend far to much of our time in “Autopilot mode”

Lets be “curious” about our world around us.
