what are you doing right now? are you aware of what’s around you? are you connected to what you are doing? are you aware of who’s around you? are you connected to anyone that may be around you? what do you want to be getting from this moment? are you fully present to it?
are you analyzing the past? are you worrying about the future? are you stressed or anxious? are you overwhelmed or scared? what do you want? who do you want to be? what do you want to do?
are you aware of what you want? when you are aware of what you want, you are more able to be present when you are aware of what you want the choices that you make are for what’s most important to you
what’s most important to you? are you choosing what’s most important to you? are you being who you want to be? are you doing what you want to do? are you experiencing what you want to experience?
choose what’s most important to you be present in the moment be grateful for your awareness be grateful for your choices awareness and choice allow for you to be present choose what you want and be grateful for the present
just moments ago i was frustrated, overwhelmed, feeling the stress that i put onto myself. i consistently plan too much in my days. and today is one of those days, i know this and i was coming “to terms” with what i won’t be getting to today in a not so graceful way.
enter my sweet kids, their energy and being in the moment…
now, i’m smiling and breathing peacefully. i’m going to go outside for a walk like i planned (and then un-planned). i will admit that it won’t be as long a walk as i want it to be though, still, i’m putting me first (this is for another time too).
be in the moment! choose what makes you happy and smile. choose what makes the rise of your shoulders release and feel the tension ease out.
nature and the outdoors are a natural experience of being in the present, of being at peace
nature revitalizes, energizes
nature frees and awakens
in nature we are in the moment
enjoy the warming sun, blue sky, gray sky, purple sky, green lushness, bird song, a breeze, a muted fog morning, glistening trees of ice cover, brilliant cloudy sky, full bright moon, a tumbling brook of water, crisp autumn air, warm rain drops, splashing through a puddle, rattling dancing leaves, smell the apple blossoms, feel the cool water of the lake on your toes, sit on a rock throne…
i love sitting on my steps and seeing green! trees and green beyond. sunshine shining, reflecting, dancing, shimmering and glittering on the leaves. listening to twittering birds and insects hums. i love nature and sitting outside and getting immersed in it.
there are many wants i have. many dreams and desires. i have many desires achieved now that i am living and experiencing. i have desires that are growing and expanding. i have dreams and desires that are experienced in little ways, and wanted in big ways. i have dreams and desires creating the vision of the life that i want to live.
in all these wants of mine, the biggest desire now is to be present. be present for myself, be present for those i am sharing the moment with.
i want to be aware of the experience, enjoying the experience. i want to be connected to my inner being and connected to who i may be with. i want to be me, free of masks. i want to enjoy others for their being, no expectations and no judging, connecting to their being.
present. being. connected. life. love.
where am i? present!
where am i going? being present in the next moment!
interesting how thoughts can change so much and be so different. thoughts being felt and connected to. thoughts being wanted and desired. and these feeling and thoughts will be the complete opposites of previous thoughts. what is it that causes such different thoughts, feelings and wants?
is it a difference of thinking with mind or thinking with heart? is it a difference of energy felt and had in each experience? is it a difference of how present i am in each moment of these feelings and these thoughts?
what is it to live in the present moment? to live in the now moment?
is being in the present moment letting go of all thoughts? our minds wander so much in a day; thinking, analyzing, worrying and dreaming. what should we let go? what should we allow?
i want to be fully present in the moment, or thinking positively about what i want and what’s most important to me. i want to be connected to what’s most important to me and experiencing what bring me joy and love. i want to grow and expand with my dreams and desires. what part of this is being in the present moment?
i don’t think i can answer the question, the moment has changed. each moment is different, each experience is different. with each new moment and each new experience our thoughts will change and grow.
when i don’t like a thought i will choose to focus on the now moment. when i don’t like a thought i will choose to think positive about what i want and connect to that feeling. i will choose to make the positive feeling my now moment.
my wandering mind. where will it wander to in the next moment?
