The Present

The past is gone; the future is not yet here; today is a gift. That’s why they call it the present. How are you using your present? Are you a human being or a human doing? Are you open to the wonder of what’s happening inside and outside of you here and now? Or are you as I often am, musing over what happened there and then; or what might happen in the times to come?

Even the happy memories we often cling to, set-up expectations that make the present seem somehow wanting and less-than, and make us seek to recreate what can not be recreated. Please, let these go! Become aware and mindful of what you’re doing under your radar. Experience the wonder of the moment! See life stretched before you in smiling repose, like a fully laden buffet table, and take what will to make your heart sing.
