“Live in the moment…” they always say – but for many of us, this action is fleeting. We become conscious of this for a little while and then fall back to our daydreams and our thoughts of yesterdays.
Bouncing from our hopes for the future to the memories of the past. This is our perspective.
As we daydream, however, there exists a place waiting to be seen. It’s sitting in the blind spot of our anxieties. The anxieties about what we have planned for tomorrow and the mistakes from yesterday we do not want to repeat.
This place is a place of realization, a place of peace, a place free of the illusion of what could be and what was. This place is each present moment – the awareness of what IS.
How beautiful to be aware of what IS.
To be breathing, to be alive, to be conscious. To understand both yesterday and tomorrow only exists as an idea in our minds. To be able to experience what IS without having to dig it up in a memory or to picture it in a daydream of the future.
It is here, it is now, it is waiting to be seen and liberated. Open your eyes and greet this gracious reality. It is always there ready to be admired, embraced, and realized.
