January 2015

Hello Everyone: One of my favorite books is Mark Nepo's The Book of Awakenings.  His short daily devotions provide insight and centering for our lives.   In one of his January devotions, he explores how rare and precious it is to be in this human form at this time and place.   His words resonate with me because sometimes it is hard to soften into this type of gratitude -- gratitude for simply being alive and aware.  Whether we are going through easy or difficult times, our particular human birth at this time and in this place is unrepeatable and purposeful. So given our unique and precious human form, our challenge is to be awake to what we feel, what we love and the choices we make in the moment.   There is little more that we need ask of ourselves.   What a nice way to open ourselves to this New Year:   resting and softening into the Now. Margie

The Present Moment – Christmas/New Year 2014-2015

Hello Everyone:

A couple of weeks ago, 60 Minutes aired a segment in which Anderson Cooper participated in a 3 day meditation workshop led by Jon Kabot-Zinn, a leader in mindfulness meditation.  www.cbsnews.com/news/mindfulness-anderson-cooper-60-minutes/ 

I really appreciated the segment because it reminded me that meditation/mindfulness is not something we have to add to our daily routine; it is NOT one more thing we have to DO. 

Rather, it is a way of Being.  Being in each moment: being in rest, being in meetings, being in eating and being with friends.    

Yet as Cooper realized, the idea of being in the present moment is not always easy.  Our need to multi-task, to plan, to interact with numerous people on different levels at the same time often takes us away from our ability to be in the present.

But just as in other areas of our lives, our willingness to practice is what matters.  All we need do is continue to come back to our breath and take time to remember that the only "real" moment in life is the present  one --no matter how imperfect, sad,  flawed or exhilarating that moment is. 

And so I wish you many present moments as we move into the new year and many opportunities to practice a different way of being in each moment. 

Margie ***********************************************************************************
