    Listening to “Becoming Stillness” by Franciscan Monk Richard Rohr and hearing the truth of it, meet the wild beast.

    There’s nothing limiting in my capacity to be present. I just need to realise that I am here. One “trick” I can build on some more is to associate presence with a routine task like cleaning my teeth. And then spread to some of the many other activities of the day.

    Be more aware of my surroundings, not take things for granted. Don’t just spend my days going through the motions. Each day brings something new. Something new to learn or to experience. If you are not truly present you will miss it.

    Take three deep breaths and listen, hold my voice. Embrace what I see and what is in front of me in the moment. Stop my mind from going all over the place my taking in the moment with each breath.

    To be present, I would have to set aside my anxiety for the future and never-ending t0-do list and instead really be observant and avaible in the moment I am in.

    Pay attention to the background noise. Don’t let myself get deeper & deeper into the hole- but, when the past or future starts invading my ‘headspace’…..gently release it [or, when need be] get the 250 lb. Bouncer-of-my-mind to escort those busy-bodies AWAY {while} getting to a present breath & what’s right in front of me.

    Remind myself often thru out the day to breathe. Focusing on my breath not only calms me but reminds me to be in the moment, the present moment.

    I can improve by using the energy of mindfulness to come back from a mind either off in the future or lost in the past. Then I can come back to the present moment and notice all of the goodness around me! Mindfulness is the energy which helps to shine light on what’s really happening.
    What’s really happening? Most of the the time there is almost always something to enjoy and be grateful for!
    Mindfulness is the magic of healing and love!

    Just do it. I know how, I just need to do it.

    So much good advice here. Real wisdom. I think meditation is helping me. Also, caching myself when I slip into past or future thinking. I know it’s a sign that something is off and I’m escaping from this moment.

      Your post has helped me! Those last two lines really reminded me I need to meditate more often. Thank you!

    I am never anywhere but rather everywhere at the same time. Scattering myself is easy, the hardest thing is to be here and that even when I write these words.
