How many times a day are we really living in the moment and feeling the moments while we are doing something?
For example right now that you are reading this newsletter how much are you aware of your body posture and your feet, or your breath, etc..
Let’s look at your body right now and scan it for a moment. See where in your body you have tension and relax it and notice how funny it is that it has been there for a while and you have not been aware of it! Now take a deep breath and just bring all your attentions to that breath, just stay with your breathing for a while.
What I am trying to call you forth is to live more in the Present!
I mean instead of doing something just for doing it and then doing something else and not feeling it in the moment, you can bring more awareness and more life into whatever you are doing just by pausing and questioning yourselves at the beginning of each action.
That question could be:
• What am I doing?
• Why am I doing it?
• Am I thinking about something that has made me sad, or upset, and has made me struggle?
• What is the benefit of this thought for me?
• What can I do for that?
• If I can do anything for that, what could be my possible action?
• If I cannot do anything about that, or let it go, how can I get benefit and be empowered?
• Or will I be in more peace if I just let it go?
• If I am spending time with my family am I fully present?
• If I am eating something, what am I gaining? Energy? More fat? Regrets?
• If I am procrastinating, am I getting closer to my goals or farther?
• If I am keeping grudges, am I not hurting my own body and my soul just because of somebody else’s mistake or different point of view?
• If I am eating am I paying all my attention to the food that is in my mouth and enjoying every single bite?
• Am I noticing that my body is the first thing and the last thing that I ever have in my whole life and I am responsible for how I am treating it?
Now by keeping these questions in your mind let’s try a new week, and see if pausing more and asking more questions from yourselves can help you be more peaceful, in love, detached, and comfortable, and choose more consciously in all areas of your life. The moment we are living in right now is a gift, that’s why it is called the “present.”
May peace and love be present throughout the journey of your life.
And enjoy every second of your journey, no matter what.
