The new round of The Practice of Living Awareness begins with the only thing possible: a smile. Smiling is a choice, and awareness is too. That’s the curious thing about being human: that happiness is the choice of how we interact with a moment, and that awareness is the choice of being Aware. The power in that is amazing, but so is each moment and everything that is collected, displaying, presenting, and dynamically calling.
Through today, look up from the phone, look out a window, look at the person you are with, smile. Through the day realize how often you are choosing awareness and how frequently distraction, habit, and numbness is your state. Choose, feel presence and its power. Live awareness!

I loved this one today, because this morning I had dental work done and so today my smile and my “state of numbness” are one and the same! Hehehe!
Yes. That’s awareness! And in the realization that we really do create the reality of any moment, there lies the power of transformation from bored to engaged, from misery to action, from being distracted to choosing steadfastness, from impatience to patience. You chose awareness! and thank you from the world for doing so. 🌸
