The Mindful Fox: How Foxes Can Teach Us Some Valuable Lessons
Roeselien Raimond is a talented Dutch photographer who has stunned us already with her extraordinary pictures of beautiful wild foxes (also here). She’s now back with some new pictures of these mesmerizing animals that she wants to share with Bored Panda readers, and this time she shows that foxes can teach us some valuable lessons.
“Did you ever witness a fox totally stressed out? Agitatedly browsing its agenda or panicking about a double appointment?.. Ever seen a depressed fox, wondering if this is really all there is to life? A fox with social phobia, scared to meet the other foxes? An OCD fox, obsessively avoiding the black stones?.. Nope? This is why;
Foxes master the Art of Living in the Moment. They listen to their body and understand its messages.When the body says hunger, they go find some food. When the body says sleep, they find a quiet place and take some rest.When the body says babies, they find a mate. And when the body is just saying nothing… they adequately respond by doing… nothing. Look at us, with or overcrowded schedules, running from A to B and back like mad, without even really knowing why. Ignoring the signals of our body and exceeding our borders. Foxes don’t look back or forth, they live right here, right now. While we keep puzzling how to lead a meaningful, fulfilling live… foxes just fulfill their lives.
Meditation, yoga… Mindfulness… Foxes just act to it. Time to take a lesson from the Zen-masters themselves, the best teachers ever!”
