During a recent snowstorm in Baltimore, I recalled a meditation from the app, Waking Up, by Sam Harris. The meditation is called: “The Last Time” and it is narrated by William B. Irvine.
In it, he asks us to imagine that whatever we are doing, we are doing it for the last time. As I prepared to go out shoveling, I paused and looked at the red cardinals, the Bluejays, the nuthatches and chickadees frolicking at my bird-feeders and felt a sense of calm and gratitude pervade my being.
How might a perspective of “the last time” impact you today?
