Rapt: Savoring

If you want to savor, you can focus on an internal feeling, as when you thrill with joy, bask in pride, swell with gratitude, or marvel in awe. You can also attend to a sensory pleasure, such as gazing at a rainbow or letting a great piece of chocolate melt in your mouth. Recalling a man who took a special delight in concrete sidewalks: “One person can enjoy something that no one else could. Savoring reveals the tremendous creativity of the human mind.”

“Basking in pride” is maybe not what one would consider a ‘zen approach.’  Hubris is a construct of the ego, and feeding it is both unnecessary and unwise.

This does not mean your emotional radar can only consist of the serious & the joyless, though.  Finding even the smallest moments and wholly embracing them is a healthy & mindful practice.  We are our thoughts.  Why not linger on the best of them?
