Being *present* is one of the greatest assignments of our current society
There will always be things that need doing, cleaning, fixing
goals that want achieving, expectations (own, family, community, world) to strive for
and new things to buy, want, *need*
Sometimes being present can be uncomfortable as we may hear and truly feel things we are afraid of hearing and feeling. Hence why distractions are so tempting. Our internal dialogue, fears, pain.
In presence we can learn what it is to really be alive, the incredible gift of life.
I’m always learning to be present - forgetting then remembering. Forgetting then remembering. To take in the moment and savour it.
Some of my favourite teachers :
trying new things
seeing new things
connection with loved ones
Do you use any of these tools ? And are there any I could add to my list ?
