DAY 365+36

being here and now,
not anywhere else
is not an abdication
is taking possession of our life by accepting that there is no need to change anything
it is a chance to define again beauty, perfection and joy

being here and now,
not anywhere else
is something that takes courage
and a kind of wise naivety
and honesty
and patience

being here and now,
not anywhere else
demands attention
and mastering the art of focusing on the present
leaving aside all our prejudices

Dexterity only comes with practice
but it is worth the effort
because this is the best method to find the way into ourselves

Beautiful post Zena. Being here and now also seems to relax the brain so it can function better too.....

In yoga class, our teacher is always talking about being in the present mind and space. Definitely something that takes practice. My mind tends to wander a lot.
