E.T.’s Words of Wisdom

Leaving Ghost Ranch

Leaving Ghost Ranch

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.”

      While writing this I thought about the time we saw E.T. in NYC. A great experience. I could use some of his beautiful, calm energy on most days.
