What do you think about this?

How would your life be affected if you turned all your mirrors to the wall or draped towels over them for one week, and you resorted to using your car's narrow little rear-view mirror to check for spinach between your teeth? Try it if you're feeling brave. You'll find it isn't easy, but it could transform your idea of yourself. Learn to foil your own expectations. Turn things in your head. Take a cold shower. Take a walk in the rain. Stand on your head and look at your living room upside down. Eat pizza for breakfast and cereal for dinner. Shake yourself up and open your eyes. Anything you do can pop you right out of automatic pilot and into the current moment. You don't have to live like a robot. Everything you do, no matter how ordinary, is worth doing with total attention. Determine what it takes to wake yourself up and do it everyday! This is ZEN!
