The beauty of the moment

Have you ever experienced the perfect moment?

The kind of moment where times to stand still and you’re so present that
there’s no thoughts of the past and no concerns about the future.

It’s more than a concept – because it’s the real you. Simply Be-ing in
the moment
– no judgements of things, events, or people being bad or good.

No worries about the future.  No regrets about the past.

Just simply being here now – with an open mind and an open Heart.

We’re all capable of this sense of presence – because it’s part of our being.
It doesn’t take long hours of study or meditation. All it takes is a sincere desir
to be right here, right now in the moment.

And the mind lets go.

Your Heart opens and your connection to the Infinite strengthens and reveals
itself. Random thoughts and distractions come in and go out like waves on the
ocean. Issues that once troubled you simply dissolve like the sea foam on the
crest of the waves.

The more you let go, the more you feel the presence, the beauty of the moment.
The irony is you can’t get there through wanting it or desiring it.

The paradox is you can only get “there” by letting go.

Letting go of desire
Letting go of fear
Letting go of needing things to go your way
Letting go of your version of the way things should be

But the mind often steps in and says things like:

“If I let go, nothing will happen…”
“I’m afraid of letting go, because I’ll lose control”

But the opposite is true. The more you hold on they to control the flow, the
more it slips through your fingers. The more you let go, the more you become
present and allow higher forces to assist you.  In other words, it gets easier the
more you let go.

Solving the dilemma of the “Restless Mind” seems complex…

But it isn’t.

That’s the mind judging something it just doesn’t understand
(and is often afraid of).

It’s as simple as making a decision.

A decision to make things simpler. A decision to return home again.

…home to the real you.

As you breathe deeply now, behold the beauty of this moment with innocence,
wonder and love. Like a child watching the clouds move across the sky.

That is where you’ll find your beauty – right here, right now.

P.S. One way to be present is to get in touch with your breathing.
Just listen to your breath as you breathe in and out…

As you do, you will begin to feel the Presence…

How will you choose to be present today?

    Being in the moment releases the past as well as prevents worry about the future. This eliminates stress which keeps you healthy and happy.

    I choose to be present today by focusing my full attention on whatever I am doing without being distracted by thoughts of the past or worries about the future.

    What a great message! Reminder to get out of my own way and take in the present moment with arms wide open to receive. I think of the Creed song Arms Wide Open as I type this. The song is about receiving new that a child is on the way. It can be about anything as you listen to the lyrics…..keeping arms wide open to change. Thanks Paul!!
