Today, Day 10 of the 21-Day Meditation Experience Deepak spoke about Hope over Doubt. I’ve been pondering the word Hope a lot over the last week or so….and I loved Oprah’s term of allowing ‘mental claustrophobia’ to rob us of living in our now with joy and hope.
Day 10 – Learn to “Be Here Now”
“The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it.” – Thích Nhất Hạnh~
Feeling stuck is often a product of the limits we put on ourselves through fear and doubt we have accumulated from the past. Instead of opening up to the possibilities available in the present moment, we shrink and contract. Today we learn that the expansion of awareness that is cultivated in meditation overcomes these limitations and opens us up to the creative possibilities in the present without fear or doubt.
Be Here Now….I’m thinking this needs to be a bumper sticker!!
Taking the time for myself, to Just Be In My Now, is a gift I Strive to give myself daily. That doesn’t mean going back and rehashing the past, or trying to look so far ahead at a future that hasn’t even been written yet…..it means embracing the comfort, the ease and warmth of the moment. Namaste 🙏
Pure, transparent awareness is my essential nature.
