Weekly Focus - Being Present (7)

Today it's Mother's day! How are you going to practice being present today?

I recommend the following while interacting with people today: listen closely to what people say to you and ask questions and give answers on what is said. Do your best to avoid assumptions about what was said or what was meant. Set an intention to check in with yourself on a regular basis. How am I feeling right now, am I present or distracted, am I loving first?

  1. Good questions.
    What does it mean to be present? How can we describe, make it up? How indeed does one 'want' to experience their moments... and what is it that we tend to distract ourselves from authentically celebrating, valuing 'the present?' (moment)
