Presence

I think one thing about getting older, and I see it in our elders as well, is that you start appreciating moments that feel good. And then you just start appreciating moments in general. Good, bad or indifferent. Just being present, for this amazing show. With the same presence we’ve always been. I do think many of our diverse spiritual writings have preserved clues for our quest to remember and wake-up from our mind-washed state. And the phrase, “be still and know that I AM” is a powerful cantrap for remembering, and liberating, who we are. We are not our thoughts. Or even our feelings. Much less our memories. We simply, are. We’re the ones experiencing, not the experience. This is subtle and powerful alchemy.
