Feels a bit like teetering on a balance board – rocking this way and that – into future and past and all around the world inside out and back again.
I vowed to try and live in the present moment a few years ago.
It was one of the best decisions I ever made.
And now I realise that I have been drifting in and out of it. With big excursions into past and future – worry, hope, measurement and fear – and everything in between.
So now I Stay Very Present. To this breath. That breath. Gently anchoring my being to a tighter and tighter more closely defined place of eternal magnitude and stillness.
Feels somewhat like trying to balance a stick on my finger.
So I use more and more focal points – as listed previously – a toolbox of techniques.
Gotta keep it relaxed. Calm. Patient. Focussed. Accepting.
I know I’m missing the point. Kinda. Hmm… This one is gonna run and run…
