Attending to the Present Moment


Life is in the Present Moment

There are two dimensions to our awareness of life, one is in recalling times past and dreaming about times to come; the other is to be connected to what is. Here. Now. Those we consider wise are somehow more observant and in-tune with the situations of life, awake to the present needs. What do we attend to most of the time?

Typically we spend much of our time re-enacting the past or rehearsing for the future that we miss the opportunity to connect with the present and thereby diminish the depth of our lives. If we can train our attention to be present, we can return to past experiences and plan for the future as the needs of the moment require. As we attend to the present moment we deepen and enrich our connection with the vibrancy of life around us.
