Remembering the Moment

Remembering the Moment

It is only in the present moment that we experience being alive.

 

Life, in all of its fullness, is happening right now. While our thoughts are sometimes elsewhere, beautiful opportunities and moments are being passed over and lost to the flow of time. And though we cannot possibly fully experience each leaf that falls to the ground, sometimes we get so attached to reaching our goals that we don’t pay attention to the wonder all around us. When we do that, we live in a world that exists only in our heads, while we miss life itself. There is so much to be enjoyed and appreciated that we need to remember to pay attention to the present moment, because it is the only space in which we can experience being alive.

We learn from our past, but dwelling on it keeps us from being fully present to life in the moment. We create our lives with our thoughts, but focusing so firmly on our imagined future keeps us from co-creating with the universe, so we might never allow ourselves to live our dreams as they manifest. It’s possible to be so happy and comfortable in our inner worlds that we lose touch with the business of life. We may enjoy spending large portions of time in meditation, or focused on our thoughts.

Life must be attended to, and if we are wise, we can enjoy it at the same time. We can awaken ourselves to the moment we are living right now by taking a deep breath and simply looking around. In doing so, we refocus our attention to our location in the real world. Then we can learn to appreciate the process of working toward our goals as much as their attainment. Balancing ourselves between the present moment and eternity, we can experience and enjoy the full range of reality available to us as spiritual beings living on earth.

This go out to all the Fathers on our wonderful Earth. The fathers who can spend the day with their family. The divorced fathers who spend the time alone. The fathers who will never see their children grow up. The fathers who have moved on to a better journey beyond. The fathers that cannot remember. The fathers who are sick and cannot be with their children. To all of you, I wish you a blessed Father’s day.

A dad is a person
Who’s loving and kind,
And often he knows
What you have on your mind.
He’s someone who listens,
Suggest and defends…
A dad can be one
Of your very best friends!
He’s proud of your triumphs,
But when things go wrong,
A dad can be patient
And helpful and strong.
In all that you do
A dad’s love plays a part –
There’s always a place for him
Deep in your heart –
And each year that passes,
You’re even more glad,
More grateful and proud
Just to call him your dad!
