The present moment, this one happening right now, is when your life is lived, when you can make choices, and when you can tune in to love.–Sarah McLean

Being Here and Now

Every moment of mindfulness,

every moment of relaxed, alert presence …

every moment in which the mind is not

grasping at something it thinks it needs

or trying to get away from something

it thinks it doesn’t want

is a moment of freedom.

Sometimes it’s called “presence…”

When we are present,

we see what needs to be done.

We also see the limits of what we can do.

Everything else is out of our hands.

What a relief!

~ Sylvia Boorstein, Don’t Just Do Something, Sit There
