Tuesday, May 2: Chapter 1: This Moment

I have an incredible gift in my life. So do you. No one can take it away except me. It is always with me, always there to be my friend, aid and comfort.. If there is nothing else to write about, I can write about this gift. If there is nowhere to go, hey, I’m already there. If there is nothing to do, I am already doing this. It’s the ultimate fallback: if I can’t think of what to write, or do, or want to feel better, or to make a decision, or to calm down: I come back to the present moment.

Then I feel ready for what is next, and I usually don’t care too much what is next, because the present is so nice.

And, this I love about the present, it is always available. Unlike all the stuff that drives us crazy in life, that has a middle step, where you need the right clothes, or the right place, or the right group of people, or the right time of year or the right amount of money, this present of the present is always ours.

All we have to do is come home to her, come home to ourselves. How do you do this? I could tell you my way, but every person needs to find this path for themselves.

There is nothing more important. Or easy, in a certain way. Or hidden, in another way. But easy and hidden are just concepts and the present is an experience that we can all enjoy. Now.
