In today’s rush, we think too much, want too much and forget about the joy of Being.
When you wash your hands, when you make a cup of coffee, when you’re waiting for the elevator – instead of indulging in thinking, these are opportunities for being there as a still, alert presence.
If small things have the power to disturb you,
then who you think you are is
exactly that: small.
It is through gratitude for the present moment
that the spiritual dimension opens up.
Eckhardt Tolle tells us that time is an illusion, so that would mean the “unhurried sense of time” I strive for is also an illusion. When I woke this morning determined to move through this beautiful day without a sense of urgency, I thought of E.T. I will carry his wisdom with me today: “Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life today.”
