Being present in the digital age can be a hard task. There are many distractions and alarms fighting against the peaceful nature of consciousness. Two weeks ago, I took steps and converted my phone into a mindfulness reminder.
In this time, my attitude towards my phone, the callers and all it’s bells and whistles has changed dramatically. When the phone rings, regardless of the caller, I take a peaceful breath, smile and answer calmly. Some great conversations have come about from this peaceful attitude. When looking at my phone, I smile; I see a pray wheel. When my alarm wakes me up, it’s now a loving, warm chant.
If you would like to convert your phone into a tool of mindfulness, below are the tools:-
Alarms become Om Mani Padme Hum Chant
Phone calls become Mindfulness Chimes
The background becomes a Pray Wheel
Update: Here’s a larger Prayer Wheel. (Prayer Wheels from dharma-haven.org)
Enjoy, and may they bring you the peace and happiness they’ve brought to me.
