How do we accomplish being fully present? Through training and simple realizations. The training is to be here now, to feel the tactile sensations in the body as it breathes, and to realize that this makes our life possible. This level of noticing, this level of appreciation, then become how we engage a conversation with a colleague or family member or stranger in the elevator. This level of awareness becomes how we interact with more moments of our day. We soft, open, receive and release.
First by simple repetition through the meditations, then through consciously checking in our our self, ultimately we notice that we are more fully present more of the time and that our choices and decisions are being made from appreciation, wider frames of context and consideration, and less small reactive processing. It is an awakening. It is powerful.
Soften, open, receive. Feel the perfection of just enough, then soften, open, and release. Let go, let be, just enough.
