Post 22: The journey is this very moment, don’t miss out!
The journey is now!
Okay, so no one really smokes anymore, but one thing I miss about smoking is how it forced me to take a much needed break and contemplate some things. So here’s what I want you to do. Take yourself a much needed “smoke” break. Load up that pretend pipe with the following and toke on it for a bit.
Forget the destination, enjoy the journey. The journey is … this very moment. The ultimate realization is that there is no journey, there is no destination…there is only this very moment, the eternal now.
Take several moments throughout your day to take a deep breath and remember that this moment, right here, is the eternal now. Notice how it makes you feel as you contemplate this. See if you can really sink in and enjoy this moment, no matter what is going on, whether you are standing in line at the store, vacuuming the floors at home, listening to a child’s tantrum or filtering through endless emails. It will help take the stress out of the moment and prevent the ego from rushing you through it.
Soon enough you will realize that you can enjoy every moment if you just take time to take a breath, sink in, and remind yourself of the eternal now. The good news is…it’s not going anywhere. It is here for you to enjoy for eternity! It is here for you to enjoy now, and now, and now, and now, and now…
What are you waiting for?!
Choose Spirit Now!
Choose to remember that you are more than this body, more than this mind, you are eternal Spirit. When you remember this it enables you to enjoy every moment of this beautiful experience of life…the good, the bad, and everything in between.
