Mindful Dishwashing

As I focus my attention to the mundane task of washing the dishes, my experience becomes dominated by my sensory perceptions: feeling of water on my hands, smell of soap, sound of water and dishes clanging and the visual sense made available through my eyes.
I do not need to allow my mind to fool me into creating false projections about the future or access my memory banks to visit moments of the past. I do not need to allow my emotions to fabricate ridiculous claims such as “I hate doing the dishes”…
I can just immerse myself in the HERE and NOW, because thats all that actually exists.
