If you’re living in the U.S. you might be trying to get three days worth of work done today to prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday. Or you may be at home making food for tomorrow, or packing to travel. Even if Thanksgiving isn’t being celebrated where you are you’re probably busy doing something today for something you want to have later. Like working now for turkey later. This is our cycle in Western culture. We produce and consume. In this loop, however, giving thanks often escapes us, because consumption and enjoyment are two different things. Enjoying requires presence, consumption only a stomach. If you want to be more than a consumer tomorrow you might want to consider gearing down so that you can be with the actual blessings of your life, most of which are traveling slower than the traffic on the produce-and-consume highway. In fact you could dedicate five minutes right now to producing and consuming nothing, enjoying the moment, just as a warm up. And if you can keep it up through the weekend it might help you get through the fullness of the holiday without feeling empty.
