2-21-24 …

Most of you who are reading this post are doing so after starting the day’s activities … some perhaps during a break in the daily routine … and others maybe the evening after completing most of the day’s responsibilities and duties. Whatever that case may be … it may be to your benefit to consider the following …

Find those few moments of elusive quiet time … inner time … ten … twenty … maybe thirty minutes … when the outside noises are a bit more hushed than usual … when the noises of your household are the same … your mind is not clustered with active chatters … and you make your way to a favored chair, floor position, or prone condition.

Take some slow, other deep breaths … nothing forced … a slow in-breath … hold it for a few seconds … then a slow exhale. Calm the body down … slow the mind if you can.

Now … as you gently ponder … consider the following …

“I live beyond yesterday” … pause a few seconds … “I live into today” … pause a few seconds … “and I live on into Now.”

Slowly and gently repeat this to yourself … a few seconds ( whatever feels comfortable ) … in between … but do your best to *objectively* view or oversee your position as you take these few quiet moments. Can you get a sense of just what, where, and how you are living … now? Can you look at it as if watching a movie … or watching someone else’s life being viewed?

Can you find … during these latter moments … something that went right? Can you find … even a momentary quick glimpse … something that is growth-oriented … beneficial … something “enlightening” ?

And so tomorrow … when you do this same thing … now you have a memory to build upon … and enlarge that … build upon it … develop it … feel the *life* of it … see it growing as a seedling into a blossoming flower … nurture it.

*Live* the I-AM … see the small examples of strength or courage or tolerance … and build upon them … feel them during those moments … again and again … just small time increments ever expanding … start small … don’t shoot for the moon … find something that works … acknowledge that it is growing … expand into other aspects … *breathe* it … feel it filling you … use it anywhere and everywhere … from the infant to the adult … the small to the large … let … and make … it work for you.

“I live beyond yesterday … I live into today … I live on into the Now” … the courage … the tolerance … the release … the recognition … the confidence … the serenity … the rebirth … of the larger … of the Whole … each baby-step building into the greater awareness and realization.

Let go of the shortcomings … let go of the feuds with family members, relatives, others … not through ever-present denial and dismissal … but through resolution … deal with them … do something about them … see the growth of each step … and then tomorrow … build upon it … always forward … always learning … always listening to LIFE … always recognizing … always seeing … just for a short few moments each day … and then let it grow.

It’s not complicated … it’s not difficult … it’s not frightening … it’s not hopeless … it’s not “beyond” you … it’s not too time-consuming … it has nothing to do with anyone else but YoU.

Let it work.

More tomorrow.
