One of my favorite ways to spend a quiet day is to dream. I dream about all sorts of things—future books I want to write, far away places I want to visit, new garden ideas for my back yard, just about anything will do.
Letting my imagination take me to new experiences in my headlights me up from the inside. I love it so much!
I like to think of myself as a spiritual person—a girl whose main desire is to be open,
I like to think of mindfulness as choice. Each moment, each here-and-now is full of possibilities and potentials. When you become fully present in the now, you can sense the fullness of these possible creations.
Between you and me, mindfulness is a fancy name for focus, and focus is choosing what you give your attention to. Choosing is creating because when you give your attention to something, it grows in your awareness and experience.
Humans love to remember the past and dream about the future, but the only time that truly exists is the Here and Now. This beautiful present moment is where all possibilities live at once.
When you tap into the fullness of present moment awareness, you can access anything you want to know, be, do, or have. Everything is here waiting for you to recognize that it already exists.
