Receiving Each Moment
True mindfulness in the acceptance of each moment as it is
The quiet time of year has arrived in my life, both for the tourist area that I live in as well as in my choice of activities. With it has come some discomfort as I both welcome my cocooning to write and develop new programs while also feeling the disconnection from many of my usual activities.
I have utilized many tools over the years to quiet my mind, learning to listen to the inner whispers of my soul as clearly as possible throughout my day. I spent many years incorporating the lessons from A Course in Miracles that teach this very awareness. But this year especially, I am adopting these in a moment to moment choice as I refuse to look ahead or behind at any turn in my day. Having a goal oriented nature, this is awe inspiring for me as I choose to completely receive each moment as it comes. This includes my activities, my focus on outer goals, commitments for my time and attention, as well as with my finances.
I have found such inner peace and rest, just as the many spiritual teachings have promised. I find the lessons I am learning here to be vastly rich and enlivening, as I watch my control evaporating. And with it, new eyes for all of the goal setting used in our ego based world as well as with the many spiritually based programs that promise the fulfillment of your deepest desires. I feel the exact right choices come before my awareness to assure that my future steps will be perfectly aligned with my purpose and worldly needs. I am grateful beyond measure for this and as my world shifts with the spring weather, I will incorporate this into the more busy, outer time in my lifestyle.
