    Thinking i know what that moment is, thinking I don’t know what that moment is, thinking i want to, need to know what that moment is.

    The fog of distraction, the mind going off in all directions, head in the phone or at the TV. There’s an addiction in distraction. Meditation and somatic experience help.

    Taking in the news of the world way to long during my day. Carrying it around with me way to long. I need to let go and surrender to the beauty in front of me more. After I help one person in the day I should be able to surrender and enjoy nature and life more. I am still learning how to “let go” more hours of the day to peace.

    I feel guilty if I am not “doing something.” Just being is ok–wish I could learn that.

    A big helping of Don’s home cooked complexity, served with a side order of entanglement and washed down with a tall glass of delicious judgement.

    Stepping mindlessly on the hedonic treadmill and failing to pause and step back

    When connecting with love, … had to correct after pondering more… it is possible to simply be with others and with the moment. When allowing to be disrupted from love, it gets complicated and this keeps me from the simplicity of a given moment. Thank you for this question!

    Outside obstacles that put thoughts into my head that distract me from the current moment. Worries and fears. Technology distracts all of us.

    I love today’s quote by Will Rogers: “If you find yourself in a hole, quit digging.” Monkey mind keeps me from the given moment. I heard a speaker at a 12 step convention several years ago. He spoke of the voices in our heads. He said, “Sometimes, you have to stop, put on a pot of coffee, call the voices into a meeting and remind them that you are Chairman of the Board.” I think Will Rogers is saying the same thing. I often have to remind my self to “Keep it Simple, Stupid.” Another 12-step saying!

      Right on point for me, Carol, thanks. Reminds me of the “Passengers on the Bus metaphor” .

    Not being in the moment. Not being aware that I am in the moment, but my mind has gone on another journey to what is ahead, or what is behind me in time….
    This was brought home to me yesterday, as we were visiting a state park. The beauty of nature was in that very moment….I could see it with my eyes, and then, within seconds my mind was on what time we would leave, what traffic would be like…so I stopped my brain and told it to just look around me and drink it in…then I could once again feel the cool breeze on my skin, see the rock formations before me with all the colors nature has to offer, and feast on the green of the pines….and I immediately could feel my shoulders drop, my body relax, my breathing change…..simple? Yes. And powerful!
