WORDS LIKE LIGHT
Wednesday, September 29, 2021
I’m fairly good at doing, but not so good at being. I’m almost always doing something, but rarely aware of being – but today I hope to make a change. To ‘be’ is to be present right here and right now, always, and that’s my challenge for today. I want to ‘be’ fully available in each moment, ready to feel the full influence of the eternal present. The phenomenon called ‘Hamilton Salsich’ occurs, in a brand new way, over and over each moment, and I want to be entirely present to observe and enjoy the vastness and mystery of myself. Actually, whether I’m aware of it or not, I will always be carefully positioned right in the center of the present, so why not take pleasure in that? I really have no choice today: I must be – and stay – precisely in the present, and I hope to reap the incredible benefits of that simple fact.
ADVICE Notice the way stars seem to rustle when you see them from a field. Find the place where sunsets disappear, and visit it when you're sad. Listen to the breezes when they organize themselves and sing together. And keep your eyes on other faces. Notice the kindness that often blossoms like crowds of flowers in these faces.
